Detectives Seeking Public’s Assistance on Hit and Run to Motorcyclist

Traffic Collision Investigation Squad (TCIS) detectives are seeking the public’s assistance for a hit and run collision that occurred  last night on West Marginal Way South. The collision left a motorcyclist with a broken leg.

At about 8:15 last night, a 26-year-old man on his motorcycle was stopped facing southbound at a red light on West Marginal Way South, waiting to turn onto South Holden Street. Without warning, a vehicle travelling north on W. Marginal Way S. struck the motorcyclist, causing the motorcycle to fall over onto the man, breaking his leg.  The vehicle continued to drive north on W. Marginal Way S. without stopping to provide information or render aid.

Seattle Fire responded and treated the motorcyclist.  He was transported to Harborview Medical Center.  His injury is not considered life-threatening.

The only description detectives have right now of the vehicle is a darker grey (charcoal) vehicle missing its driver’s door side mirror.  Anyone with information on this hit and run collision investigation is asked to contact TCIS Detective Schmidt at (206) 684-8935.
