Hit and Run Driver Strikes Woman Pushing Stroller In Olympic Hills

Seattle police are searching for the driver of a dark-colored sedan, who fled the scene after striking a woman pushing a stroller Friday afternoon in the Olympic Hills neighborhood in North Seattle.

Around 1:20 PM, the 32-year-old woman and young child, who was in the stroller, were walking in the 140th Avenue NE and NE 19th Street when the driver of a sedan struck the woman and then sped away.

Witnesses provided different descriptions of the suspect’s vehicle—either a maroon Acura or a dark brown Mercedes—but all said it had a cracked windshield. Witnesses also described the driver as an Asian male with spiked black hair.

The woman sustained a lower leg injury in the incident. The child in the stroller was not injured.

Traffic Collision investigators responded to the scene and are handling the case.
