A 40-year-old man seriously injured after a car plows into a tree and catches fire (Seattle, WA)

On Monday night, a car slammed into a tree and caught fire in south Seattle, leaving a 40-year-old man with serious injuries.

As per the initial information, police tried to pull over a car, but the driver drove away. The investigation reports showed that the driver then rammed into a tree at a high rate of speed at about 9:40 p.m. in the 1800 block of Martin Luther King Way E. Officers and a civilian managed to pull the 40-year-old driver from the vehicle. The reports further revealed that the car burst into flames moments after. No one else was inside the vehicle.

The car broke up into several pieces, with car tires and other parts flying into nearby fences. Flying debris caused minor damage to homes, but neighbors nearby remained unharmed.  The reports also added that when the crews were extinguishing the fire, ammunition in the car started exploding.

The driver also reportedly had a few warrants out for his arrest. He is also a convicted felon and, therefore, cannot have ammo on him. The driver was rushed to Harborview Medical Center and is listed in serious condition. He will be arrested once he is discharged from the hospital.

An investigation continues.
