A vehicle plunged 70 feet down a ravine in the 4600 block of East Mercer Way after 10 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13. The driver, 20, and passenger, 19, were not injured. While northbound, coming out of a curve, the driver lost control of his vehicle and went off the road.
Police arrested the driver, a Mercer Island resident who had been drinking and refused both the preliminary breath and Breathalyzer tests. He was cited for DUI and minor in possession, and he was released to his father. The vehicle, a Volkswagen Passat, was towed out of the ravine.
