According to Capitol Hill Seattle Blog, a driver was arrested for investigation of DUI after a car carrying the 39-year-old, another adult, and two children plunged around 20 feet after crashing off the roadway, through a fence, and into a construction pit Friday night at MLK and Union.

Seattle Fire rushed to the scene of the 11:21 PM crash to find the car sitting upright on the under-construction foundation of the four-story development underway at the corner. No additional medical units were called to the scene after the initial response. The car’s four occupants were able to get out of the vehicle on their own, according to Seattle Fire radio reports.

Seattle Police investigated the crash as a DUI. According to East Precinct records, the 39-year-old was arrested and booked for DUI and three counts of reckless endangerment. He is currently being held on $4,000 bail in King County Jail awaiting arraignment scheduled for Saturday.
