Bonney Lake police search for elusive Thunderbird

The car almost hit a patrol vehicle the morning of May 5.

Bonney Lake police are searching for a vehicle almost involved in a collision with officers.

At around 5:30 a.m. on May 17, officers were dispatched to a single vehicle in the ditch alongside Elhi Rim Road.

Several people managed to pull it out, and when officers arrived on the scene, the car — a 1987 Ford Thunderbird with the license plate WA/AHK0131 — drove toward officers at a high rate of speed, nearly colliding with the patrol vehicle.

The Thunderbird drove down state Route 410 and exited in Sumner with officers pursuing.

The chase ended when the car drove west in the eastbound lanes of SR 512.

The vehicle has heavy front-end damage and missing a portion of its exhaust.

Officers ask anyone with information to call 9-1-1 and not approach or make contact with the vehicle or drivers.
