VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A bizarre case of family feud after the Clark County Sheriff's Office says several family members got into a big altercation that ended with a car crash.

They say the driver of the SUV hasn't been caught.

The whole thing happened around 11:45 a.m. near Northeast 73rd Street and Northeast 147th Avenue.

The quiet Vancouver street turned into a chaotic scene Friday morning after deputies were called out to a disturbance at a home on NE 147th Avenue.  

"I heard all the commotion down the block there and saw someone busting out all the windows on that one car down there," said Brenda Kent, who lives near the corner of the crash.

A few minutes later neighbors said they heard the car take off from the home and speed down the street.

Deputies say it was one brother who busted out the windows of his other brother's cars before driving away.

Within seconds, the other brother driving the Suburban spots them

That's when deputies say that brother intentionally slammed his SUV into the car, injuring everyone inside.

"We just heard the crash of the cars colliding and then heard another one where the green car slammed into the curb," said Thea Hunt, who went over to help the victims.

"I see people from here all running all over the place. I don't know if it was neighbors or actually them because there was a lot of people running around," said Joseph Bryden who lives nearby.

Some neighbors came over to help as deputies started to arrive.

"One guy was laying on the ground and had a lot of blood on the left side of his face I'm not really sure what happened, I think he might have gotten cut," added Hunt.

Our cameras were rolling as deputies arrested one brother for breaking out all the car windows.

Investigators said it appears the whole thing started earlier in the morning after a dispute at the Fred Meyer parking lot between the two brothers and their dad but they haven't said what initiated that dispute.

"I've been here like 23 years and we hardly have anything happen here so this one especially when it happens in your front yard," added Kent.

The Clark County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate and search for the other brother who fled from the scene.
