From a Washington State Patrol news release.
At approximately 12:37 pm on Saturday afternoon, March 3, 2018, Washington State Patrol (WSP) received reports of an injury Hit and Run Collision on State Route 9 at State Route 96 (Lowell Larimar Road).
Troopers arrived on scene and observed a tan Toyota Camry in the eastbound ditch facing westbound; the Camry had struck a tree. The driver of the Camry was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.
According to witnesses, the Camry was passing a silver passenger vehicle; both vehicles were traveling westbound. As the Camry was passing the silver vehicle, the vehicles collided causing the Camry to veer off the roadway and strike a tree. The silver vehicle fled the scene in the westbound direction.
During the on-scene investigation, troopers were able to collect a silver side mirror that is believed to be from the left side of a Mazda 3 passenger vehicle; the Mazda would have also sustained driver’s side damage.
The WSP would like to remind people that if you’re involved in a collision, you’re required to stay on scene and check for injuries of each person involved. If there is anyone seriously injured, it is unlawful to leave the scene before law enforcement arrives.
If you have any information that can assist us with this collision investigation, please contact WSP Detective Kevin Nelson at 360-654-1143 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
