Kennewick Driver Evades Police, Then Leaves Car Behind
A Kennewick driver who was chased by police and actually got away, then deserted his car which the police found and now can track him down. Kennewick police started chasing the currently unnamed driver at a traffic light near 1st and Washington according to news reports. The driver eluded police at a high rate of speed and police immediately stopped chasing them because it was in a residential area and dangerous. The driver turned off his lights and sped through traffic lights until he was out of sight.
Later, police found the drivers car deserted near N. Olympia St. and W. Bruneau Ave. What the driver obviously did not understand is that police can track down the registered owner through both the license plate and vin number. Officer Jones with KPD says "those are always registered to somebody. So that's what we start our investigation with". If you have any information call 509-628-0333.
