A Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office deputy was involved in a roll over today in front of Mariner High School in South Everett.  At approximately 4:30 PM today, the deputy, a 12 year veteran of law enforcement, was traveling northbound on 4th Ave W.  As he was driving, he passed a silver BMW traveling southbound that was reported to have been driving recklessly.  The deputy made a u-turn on 4th Ave W and, as he began to follow the silver BMW, lost control of his car, which rolled. 

The deputy was extracted from the car and transported to Harborview Medical Center with minor injuries.  The BMW continued to head southbound, hitting a curb and damaging the vehicle enough to make it undriveable.  At that point, the driver abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot.  He was described by witnesses to be a black male wearing a green beanie hat.  The BMW is believed to be stolen.
