Someone ran a red light? Looks like the cab was t boned.
So far they aren't saying. That's what I thought too from the pictures. There is no yellow left turn arrow at that intersection to my knowledge. It's either green, left turn permitted, or red, no left turn permitted.

Here are the other 2 cars invoked in the accident ;

The taxi was hit head on? Did it flip? Looks like the side is smashed in.
ST says taxi was hit head on after other driver crossed the center line.

I keep my eyes peeled, always, especially for old sedans. Young Turks on their phones drive those.

Hmmm weird cause the side looks like it took a head on impact at high speed. Does look like the front was hit too. I wonder if they rolled a few times.

With all the cars I see driving around without lights on in the middle of the night, right past cops who don’t pull them over... yes, definately.

I’ll never forget when I was working xmas parties in Bellevue last year. A late model lexus was driving, very obviously drunk, with no lights on. With a bellevue PD cruiser right behind it in the same lane at a stoplight, as well as another BPD ceuiser in the opposite direction waiting for the red light. When the light changed, the drunk driver with no lights on turned and the BPD officers just kept going straight like, derp dee dooo. Shoulda sent the dash cam footage of that to the police department, but didn’t.

On the flip side, there was this time in DT Kirkland, where a KPD suv literally followed me around turn for turn as I dropped pax off, got a request, drove to location, waited, then drove them safely home. I’m talking about 4 entire trips (he was following me around for quite a while. Same cruiser, just following me around for no reason), deep into neighborhoods and back to the bars. He was sitting a couple blocks up while I waited for pax then would rush up behind me as soon as he saw pax get in and follow me to their street (And would slowly cruise past me when I stopped to let them out, staring at me every time but would catch up with me after aroubd the corner), even changing lanes when I changed lanes. I never got pulled over, of course. There was no reason for it. Priorities. Lol Finally got a ride to Seattle and he turned off as we were leaving Kirkland. Pax were a bit weirded out by the cop. We had a good laugh about it on the 520 bridge and they tipped well.

That's weird. There used to be a law that they can't follow you for more than a few minutes or miles without pulling you over. Not sure if that's still a thing. I would have for sure walked up to him to see what's up.

If you weren't displaying trade dress and looked your usual (blue-collar) self, they probably just wanted to see if you were selling drugs and/or driving couriers around.

Kirkland has been like that for 55 years or better. They followed all the way from 520 to the county border last year. Been back 1 time since.
