RAINIER BEACH – A suspected drunk driver was injured when he crashed his pickup truck into another car on the Link light rail tracks in South Seattle Monday afternoon, Seattle police officials said.
Seattle police originally reported the crash involved a light rail car, but later corrected to say two vehicles were involved and no rail cars were struck.
The collision happened around 2 p.m. where Martin Luther King Way South intersects with South Roxbury Street, said the department spokesperson Renee Witt.
The driver was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Investigators say the man appeared to be impaired and is suspected of driving under the influence.
Rail service was briefly suspended while police investigated the crash. No one else was hurt.
