Bellevue’s Oldest Structure Damaged by Stolen Car

This past Friday at 5 p.m., Bellevue Police responded to a report of a car that had crashed into a building at Chism Beach Park in Bellevue. Officers arrived and located a white Kia sedan that had crashed into the Burrows cabin, Bellevue’s oldest surviving structure. A witness saw a suspect run from the car after the crash and get into a waiting getaway vehicle in the parking lot. Police learned that the Kia was a reported stolen vehicle out of Renton. The cabin was checked by Bellevue City Engineer and cleared, and the stolen vehicle was towed from the scene. The suspects were not located. The Burrows Cabin, built in 1883, was moved to Chism Beach Park from downtown Bellevue in 2016 (story).
