Newly obtained traffic camera footage shows the moment the driver of a sports car in Bellevue lost control and crashed the vehicle she was driving, killing her passenger.
The driver, 26-year-old Ting Ye, has been charged with vehicular homicide but, according to police, has left the country for China.
Traffic cameras across several intersections document the flash of a white Porsche that police say was driven by Ye on Sept. 30 around 4 a.m.
The vehicle hit a cement barricade and went airborne. Investigators say Ye, the driver, survived and her passenger, 27-year-old Yabao Liu died. According to court documents, a first responder noted the “strong odor of alcohol coming from the defendant’s breath.”
Court records allege Ye did not cooperate with investigators and has since fled to her home country of China.
Former Washington Governor and former U.S. Ambassador to China Gary Locke points to the lack of an extradition treaty between the two countries.
“The story is not over. Yes, she was able to elude the arrest warrant, but if she were to ever travel to another country, let’s say to Europe on business or pleasure to an area, to a country that does have an extradition treaty with the United States she’ll be flagged when she enters that country by Interpol and subject to extradition back to the United States if the United States government so desires,” Locke said.
