Just wanted to answer a couple of “what was that”-type inquiries I’ve received today.
First, Tacoma police and firefighters responded to a car that had crashed into the side of a gas station in the 4200 block of Center Street.
The driver apparently had a medical emergency and died as a result, police reported.
The second inquiry was regarding the discovery of a body on Owen Beach in Point Defiance Park. A reader called to say he saw the activity a few hours ago while walking his dog in the area.
Tacoma police spokeswoman Gretchen Aguirre reports that the death appears to be a suicide. No other information was immediately available.
