An 18-year-old Sequim resident was arrested on multiple charges after reportedly driving through an intersection and fence and crashing into a building in Carlsborg on Dec. 2.
Quinton Burroughs-Hernandez, 18, was arrested for Hit and Run, Reckless Endangerment and two outstanding arrest warrants, according to the Clallam County Sheriff Office.
According to witnesses, Burroughs-Hernandez was driving the vehicle north on Mill Road at speeds of 80-90 miles per hour in a posted 35 MPH zone. The driver sped through the intersection, disregarding the stop sign, and went off the road, hitting a fence, bushes and the building, Clallam deputies said in a press release.
When the vehicle came to a stop, Burroughs-Hernandez and two other passengers ran from the vehicle, according to deputies. Passengers involved in the accident suffered minimal injuries from the crash.
Deputies responded to a vehicle accident at a business in Carlsborg at about 5 p.m. on Dec. 2, finding a Volkswagen Tiguan with damage to the windshield and the entire passenger side of the vehicle, as well as “heavily damaged building,” according to a sheriff’s report.
Deputies were advised that three of the vehicle’s occupants fled from the scene but made contact with two juvenile passengers who remained on the scene. After speaking with the two juveniles and the vehicle owner, deputies learned Burroughs-Hernandez was the driver of the vehicle.
