Car plows into Federal Way home; driver flees

The Associated Press

A Federal Way family got a rude wake-up call early Wednesday when a car crashed into a bedroom.

KOMO-TV reported that police were looking for the driver, who fled the scene.

The Ulrich family was sleeping in their house on Southwest 316th Street when a car swerved through their yard and plowed through the side of their house about 1 a.m.

The car stopped inside the bedroom next to the one where a husband and wife were sleeping. No one in the home was hurt, but it was close.

The couple’s daughter said that had they been 5 feet to the right, they would have been taken out on gurneys.

Damage caused by the crash was estimated in the thousands of dollars.
