The man responsible for sparking the gas station pump fire at the Ballard 76 on Oct. 8 turned himself into authorities last night, Seattle Police said. Det. Mark Jamieson says a friend of the man saw it in the news, and urged him to turn himself in. Detectives are doing follow-up work, and prosecutors will determine whether any charges will be filed.
The gas station’s owner gave My Ballard security camera video of the collision, which was picked up by Seattle media. Thanks, Silver, for the tip!
