Seahawks FB Derrick Coleman Could Face Felony Charges Hit-And-Run Crash

Jennifer Sullivan and Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports that Seahawks FB Derrick Coleman could face felony charges for hid involvement in a hit-and-run crash back in October.

Bellevue police claim that Coleman smoked synthetic marijuana before the crash that resulted in a serious injury to a separate driver.

According to the report, King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, who is now in charge of the case, has recommended charging Coleman with felony hit-and-run and vehicular assault. However, it could take several weeks to review the case.

Witnesses account mentioned that Coleman was traveling around 60 mph in a 35 mph zone when he swerved his truck into the center two-way left turn lane and swerved back, striking the rear of another car.

The Seahawks suspended Coleman following the accident before later reinstating him.

Coleman, 25, played out the final year of his three-year, $1.485 million rookie contract and will be a restricted free agent in the coming months.

In 2015, Coleman appeared in 14 games and ran for 32 yards on eight carries to go along with one reception for no yards and zero touchdowns.
