WSP Asking for Witnesses of Hit and Run Collision

King County -- On September 9th, 2017 at approximately 5:54 PM, the Washington State Patrol (WSP) responded to a serious injury hit and run collision on NB I-405 south of SR 167. Witnesses stated a red 4-door passenger car (unknown plate/make/model) was traveling in lane 1 of 4 and made a lane change into lane 2 striking a Toyota Station Wagon occupied by 4. The Toyota lost control and collided with the left side WSDOT jersey barrier and came to rest facing sideways across lane 3. A GMC Yukon occupied by one was traveling in lane 3 and collided (T-boned) into the Toyota.

The red passenger car that caused the chain reaction collision fled the scene. Three of the four occupants in the Toyota suffered serious injuries consisting of broken bones and lacerations that required stitches. The sole occupant in the GMC suffered minor injuries.
