Two teen boys arrested after stolen Honda crashes, lands on rail tracks

Two 16-year-old boys were arrested after a stolen car crashed and landed on Sound Transit's light rail tracks in Seattle's Rainier Valley area late Thursday night.

According to the report, a Seattle police officer and a Sound Transit police officer spotted the stolen 1992 Honda Accord as it flew past them at a high-rate speed northbound on Martin Luther King Jr. Way S. at S. Othello St. around 11 p.m.

A few moments later, the driver lost control of the car at S. Orcas St. It rolled several times before coming to rest across the rail tracks.

The two suspects inside the Honda fled westbound. A K-9 unit tracked the pair and found them hiding a short distance away in a backyard. The colllision damaged the lighting system along the tracks along with some pedestrian railings. Repairs were made and the tracks were reopened about an hour later.

The two juveniles were booked into the King County Youth Services Center on auto theft charges.
