The Seattle Police Department is investigating a stolen car crash that was captured by a Ring doorbell on Monday morning. A woman, who was home from work due to illness, was rudely awakened, as were many of her neighbors, on Monday Morning when a stolen car crashed into a telephone pole just outside of her house. The suspects were attempting to back up to flee pursuing officers when the accident occurred. The suspects then attempted to flee on foot, but officers quickly apprehended both of them.

As the entire neighborhood showed up dressed in their finest morning attire, the police arrested two suspects. Originally, the police had attempted to do a welfare check on the car when it was in a parking lot. The officers heard back from dispatch that the car had been reported stolen. The two suspects fled the scene in the car, managing to destroy two Seattle police cars in the process.

More people than ever are installing Ring doorbells, and the doorbells are recording more than just who is coming to the door. Thanks to a Ring doorbell, the crash was recorded, as was the arrest.

Typically, the Seattle Police Department handles the repair and maintenance of damaged police cars in-house. The department's fleet services division is responsible for the repair and maintenance of all police vehicles. The fleet services division is staffed with mechanics and technicians who perform repairs and maintenance as needed. If a police car is damaged beyond repair, the department may purchase a replacement vehicle.
