Security guard injured when man crashes into gate at Boeing

SEATTLE (AP) — Police say a security guard was severely injured when a car driven by a man suspected of assault crashed through a gate at Boeing’s Renton plant.

The Seattle Times reports the suspect had attacked a Renton city employee at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park and then fled in a car shortly before 8:20 a.m. Monday.

Renton police spokesman Tracy Wilkinson says as police were chasing the suspect, he crashed into the Boeing gate about 10 minutes later, and struck a security guard.

Wilkinson says the security guard was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.

Wilkinson says the suspect was detained and taken to a hospital for evaluation of minor injuries. Police planned to book him into jail on multiple charges.

Wilkinson says the city employee who was attacked didn’t suffer significant injuries.
