Police arrested a 22-year-old man suspected of driving the wrong way on South Columbian Way near northbound Interstate 5 Wednesday evening in Seattle and hitting up to 10 vehicles, according to a Washington State Patrol trooper.
Trooper Rick Johnson said police arrested the man on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs after he tried to run away from the crashes. One person in a vehicle suffered a minor ankle injury, he said. No other injuries were reported.
The crashes, which caused lengthy traffic backups, remain under investigation, Johnson said.
