FOLLOWUP: $250,000 bail set for driver who deputies say caused double-fatal Ambaum crash

More information this afternoon about the Ambaum crash that left two people dead on Tuesday just south of White Center. The woman blamed for causing the crash remains in jail, bail set at $250,000. She is 25 years old and court documents say she lives in West Seattle. Deputies say they found her in the Rainbow Mini-Mart parking lot, clearly intoxicated, and that she admitted to having been drinking. She told them she was driving home from her job on Beacon Hill and was “in a rush.” The documents say she was driving a white car and appeared to be “racing” a black car in the northbound lanes when she hit the blue car containing the victims, who spun into the path of oncoming southbound traffic. A red pickup’s driver was unable to stop in time to avoid hitting them. She faces possible charges of vehicular homicide and felony hit-run. The victims have not yet been publicly identified; the incident report describes them only as a man and a woman who appeared to be in their 30s.

  1. I hope this lady spends the rest of her life in prison . The other people that choose to race down are roads learn a lesson from this . If you want to race go to a race track spend some money on track time race all day with out risking the public’s life .

  2. Unfortunately the sentencing laws on this are pathetically lenient. It’s common to receive a 6 year sentence for this type of incident.
