Car vs. pedestrian: At 10:08 p.m., an officer responded to an accident in which a man was run over or crushed by his own vehicle. The victim’s friend reported that the man was visiting his home; as he left, he went out to warm up his black 1981 Porsche. The witness saw him open the driver’s door and reach inside the vehicle to start it. As soon as the vehicle started, it took off in reverse catching the victim with the open door, dragging and pinning him up against the house. The car was found backed up against the front porch. The victim complained of chest pain and was transported to the hospital.

Dog on the loose: At 8:30 p.m., an officer on foot patrol in downtown Snoqualmie was contacted by an employee of the Eagles club beer garden, who reported that a large dog was running around in the beer garden without a leash. The Malamute attacked a small Shih-Tzu puppy and killed it. The officer contacted the owner of the husky, who said her dog was on a leash. However, the owner of the dead dog stated his dog was on a leash when it was attacked by the husky. The officer forwarded a report to King County Animal Control.
