Four people were hurt in a crash during a test drive in Northwest Washington, according to KOMO.
Everett police said a 42-year-old woman was "driving recklessly" while on a test drive of a Hyundai Elantra Tuesday afternoon (February 2). A 38-year-old dealership employee was with her, they added.
The woman reportedly sped north on SE Everett Mall Way and rear-ended a pickup truck near 3rd Avenue SE. "The impact sent the truck across the street, through a utility pole and into a parking lot where it rolled over onto its side. A third, unoccupied parked car at the nearby business was damaged by the falling pole," reporters said.
