** UPDATE**15-year-old child sustained life-threatening injuries in hit & run collision

Detectives seeking public’s assistance. On Friday, July 19, 2013, just shortly after 8:00 p.m. a 15 year-old male pedestrian and his brother were crossing MLK Jr Wy S east to west on the south side of the intersection.

At the same time, a vehicle was travelling south on MLK Jr Wy S approaching S Walden St. The vehicle struck the pedestrian and continued south on MLK Jr Wy S without stopping to provide information or render aid.

Seattle Fire Department responded and treated the 15- year-old male pedestrian; he was transported to HMC via Medics with a life threatening head injury.

The suspect vehicle is described as a dark grey (charcoal) Honda, possibly newer.

It should have a missing drivers door mirror and broken front headlight assembly at the minimum.

Anyone with information about this vehicle and or it’s driver is asked to call 9-1-1. Anonymous tips are welcome.

***Suspect vehicle was found abandoned. It has been subsequently recovered and impounded to the evidence room for processing.*** 

The investigation continues.
