Driver flees after striking a person cycling near Georgetown

The driver of a truck that struck a 25-year-old person cycling on E Marginal Way near S Dawson St near Georgetown around 2 a.m. this morning fled the scene. The victim went to the hospital, but none of the injuries were life-threatening.

A witness followed the truck after the hit-and-run and was able to get a license plate number after the driver pulled into a fast food drive-thru.

Seattle police located the suspect vehicle at the home of the registered owner, but did not locate the suspect. Officers impounded the truck.

From Seattle Times:

In the Friday morning hit-and-run incident, the bicyclist, a 25-year-old man, was riding south in the 5200 block of East Marginal Way when he was hit by a truck.

The driver who hit the bicyclist drove away but a witness followed the truck. The driver then stopped at a drive-through restaurant and the witness wrote down the truck’s license plate number, police said in a news release.

Police tracked the truck to the address of the registered owner but have not been able to locate the driver. Police don’t know if the driver was a man or a woman, said Det. Mark Jamieson, a Seattle police spokesman. Police have impounded the truck.

The victim was treated at the scene and transported to Harborview Medical Center with nonlife threatening injuries.
