According to KOMO News, an injured, disoriented man found wandering along the streets near South Lake Union assaulted an ambulance worker who stopped to help him, police said, and now officers are trying to determine if the man is the driver of a crashed car found abandoned nearby about an hour earlier.
The incident unfolded Wednesday just before 1 a.m. when police responded to a report of a crash in Seattle, said a Seattle police sergeant at the scene.
Arriving there, officers found that a Honda had crashed into a Prius then kept rolling until it hit a fence near Denny Avenue. The driver of the Honda was nowhere to be found.
Then, about an hour later, police and medics responded to a report of a delirious man with a head wound walking around in the streets near the scene of the accident.
When an AMR ambulance got there, the man was uncooperative and he assaulted an ambulance employee, the police sergeant said. Medics eventually were able to get the man into an ambulance and take him to the hospital.
The ambulance worker sustained very minor injuries and was not taken to the hospital.
Investigators are now trying to determine if the disoriented man is the driver of the crashed Honda, police said. They also took a blood sample to see if he was under the influence of intoxicants.
