The Washington State Patrol is looking for your help to track down the driver who was involved in a hit-and-run on Interstate 5, on Oct. 28.
The driver, who may have been intoxicated at the time of the car accident, was driving a red pickup or SUV on I-5 north of the Axton Way overpass around 8 p.m. The vehicle merged onto I-5 but fishtailed, crossed into the left land and crashed into a 2007 Toyota Yaris. The Toyota driver pulled to the left shoulder, and after about 10 minutes, the suspect driver returned to the scene, according to news reports.
After being asked for his license and registration, however, the suspect driver fled the scene again.
The driver is described as a white male, about 5-foot-9 with a handlebar mustache and brown hair. “He was wearing a plaid shirt, blue jeans and a jean jacket. He was slurring his speech and was unsteady on his feet,” according to news reports.
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call Trooper Greg Laughlin at 360-654-1200 or 360-658-2588.
As a Seattle car accident attorney, I urge anyone with information of who the driver could be to come forward. The driver may be a serial drunk driver and could cause more danger on the road.
