Hit & Run, Vehicle vs Bicycle

On January 6th at approximately 1:49 p.m. officers responded to the intersection of 21 Avenue South and South College Street for a hit and run vehicle verses bicyclist collision. Preliminary investigation indicates that the suspect vehicle was heading northbound on 21 Avenue South approaching a vehicle stopped at a stop sign. The suspect drove into the opposing traffic lane (passing the stopped vehicle on the left), ran the stop sign and collided into the victim, who was riding his bicycle eastbound on South College Street. The force of the impact sent the victim into the air and he landed on the street. The suspect vehicle, described as possibly a navy blue 1980’s Oldsmobile Cutlass or Chevy with a white top, fled the scene traveling northbound on 21 Avenue South. It is probable that the suspect vehicle has front-end damage. SFD Medics responded to the scene and transported the victim to Harborview with life-threatening injuries. The victim is a 20-year-old man from Seattle. Anyone with information about this incident or the suspect and/or vehicle is asked to call 911 immediately.
