Seattle Seahawks Fullback Arrested After Frightening Hit & Run Crash

Seattle Seahawks RB Derrick Coleman Arrested for Vehicular Assault, Hit & Run

Breaking News

Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman was arrested for hit and run in Washington early Thursday morning ... after cops say he was involved in a crash that may have injured another driver. 

According to the police report, Coleman was driving his truck -- which collided with a Honda Civic around 6PM. 

In a photo of the crash scene obtained by Q13Fox.com, you can see Coleman's car was knocked on its side and the Honda was flipped completely upside down. It's a miracle no one was killed. 

Coleman reportedly walked away from the crash scene -- despite the fact the other driver appeared to be suffering from injuries ... possibly a broken collarbone. 

Cops found the 24-year-old near the crash scene and arrested him without incident. A DUI test was administered ... so far, the results haven't been made public. 

He was booked into King County Jail where he's being held without bail until he appears in court for a bail hearing.

BTW -- Coleman is famous for being the first legally deaf offensive player in the NFL -- and has said he uses hearing aids and reads Russell Wilson's lips to understand the plays. 

Coleman has been suspended indefinitely by the Seahawks.
