Man found dead in mini-van near Redmond Ridge
A resident found a vehicle with a dead body inside in a wooded area near Novelty Hill Road and Redmond Ridge Drive Northeast and alerted the King County Sheriff's Office at about 5:30 p.m. on Monday.
According to Sgt. Cindi West, the sheriff's office public information officer, when officers arrived they found a Chrysler mini-van north of the intersection with the body of a 60-year-old male driver inside. The deceased man was not wearing a seat belt.
"There is evidence of high speed," West said. "It appears that the accident occurred possibly weeks earlier."
West said the accident was near a "T" intersection with Redmond Ridge Drive Northeast running south from Novelty Hill Road. She added that the mini-van was headed northbound on Redmond Ridge Drive Northeast and drove through the intersection, up a 30-foot embankment and crashed into the wooded area.
