Public’s help sought in locating hit-and-run driver, who injured two on Highway 99
The incident occurred at 2:45 a.m. on Sept. 20, 2013 at the corner of 220th Street Southwest and Highway 99. The victims, a 38-year-old Mountlake Terrace woman and a 36-year-old Everett man, were in the crosswalk on the east side of Highway 99 heading north on 220th Street Southwest when they were struck by the pick-up truck as it traveled westbound on 220th. It did not stop and was last seen by witnesses heading west on 220th St Southwest toward 76th Avenue West. A driver’s side mirror presumably lost as a result of the impact was found at the scene.
The female suffered multiple injuries including a fractured femur and was transported to Swedish/Edmond Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The male suffered abrasions, bruising and other less-severe injuries and was also transported to Swedish/Edmonds for treatment. Both victims have since been released from the hospital and are recovering at home.
The suspect vehicle is described as a mid-2000’s Dodge Ram 1500 pickup with a missing tailgate, black bed liner and possible existing damage to the passenger door area. The driver’s door mirror will probably be missing or recently replaced.
The Edmonds Police Department has exhausted all leads and is asking for the public’s help in locating the driver and vehicle involved in this collision.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Edmonds Police Department at 425-771-0212 and ask for Officer Tony Collins, Lead Traffic Collision Investigator.
