The RV driver abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot; police were unable to locate the suspect during a K9 search.

A Federal Way police officer sustained minor injuries after an RV intentionally collided with the officer’s vehicle before the driver fled on foot on Tuesday night.

Just after 10:30 p.m., police responded to a report of an RV crashing through a gate and out of a storage lot in the 33200 block of 24th Ave. S., according to Cmdr. Kurt Schwan with Federal Way police.

Officers located the vehicle and attempted a traffic stop, however, the RV failed to yield and intentionally collided with the police vehicle near the 33600 block of 20th Ave. S.

The RV continued for a short distance before the driver abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot, Schwan stated. Police conducted a search with a K9, but they were unable to locate the suspect.

One officer sustained a minor injury during the incident and was treated at St Francis Hospital.
