WSP seeks witnesses to hit-and-run collision on SR 516 near Kent

The Washington State Patrol is seeking the public’s help in identifying the driver involved in a hit-and-run collision on State Route 516 near Kent on Friday morning.

At about 6 a.m., a young woman was walking westbound on SR 516, crossing the onramp to southbound Interstate 5, when she was struck by a white newer 4-door pickup truck, possibly a Chevy Silverado.

The driver stopped his vehicle and transported the seriously injured woman to the hospital, but he did not provide any identification to her.

He is described as a 20- to 30-year-old Hispanic man with “lighter skin” and a mullet-style haircut.

Anyone who witnessed this incident or has information on the suspect or vehicle involved is asked to contact WSP Detective Russ Haake at
