Police ask for help solving deadly hit-and-run in Seattle's Lake City neighborhood

Police are looking for the driver involved in a hit-and-run crash at NE 125 Street and 28th Avenue NE that left a 77-year-old woman dead.

SEATTLE — Seattle police are asking for the public’s help to find the driver involved in a hit-and-run that killed a 77-year-old woman.

It happened on September 30 at about 9 a.m. at the intersection of NE 125th Street and 28th Avenue NE in Seattle’s Lake City neighborhood. That is a busy two-way street with a two-way center turn lane and there is no pedestrian crosswalk.

Police said the driver hit two people as they were trying to cross NE 125th Street and then kept going. Both the man and woman who were hit were 77-years-old.

The vehicle that struck the couple is believed to be a white 1997-2001 Toyota Camry. The vehicle may have damage to the front bumper, hood, and windshield.

The suspect drove off eastbound on Northeast 125 Street through the Union Bank parking lot.   

The Seattle Fire Department examined both victims at the scene and determined their injuries appeared minor, police said. They were both taken to a hospital by private ambulance. 

However, one week after the collision, the King County Medical Examiner notified police that the 77-year-old woman died. 

Police are now asking anyone with information about this incident to contact SPD’s Traffic Collision Investigation Squad at 206-684-8923.
