Two Hospitalized after Hit-And-Run Crash on Railroad Avenue Shelton
Shelton, WA (May 29, 2020)– On Friday morning, two unidentified individuals sustained injuries in a hit-and-run on 7th Street towards Railroad Avenue.
The crash occurred at around 1:00 a.m. on May 29. Dispatched officers arrived and found the two injured motorcycle riders.
According to reports, a car traveling southbound on 7th Street towards the Railroad Avenue intersection turned left onto Railroad.
The vehicle went directly in the path of a motorcycle traveling through the intersection.
However, the at-fault driver immediately fled the scene, leaving the two motorcycle riders injured. Both of them wore helmets.
The passengers then immediately transported to Harborview Medical Center.
Moreover, the suspect’s vehicle is believed to be a 2000-2005 Chevy Impala, possibly silver. It should have damage to the passenger side.
Furthermore, officers continue searching for the driver and ask anyone with information regarding the incident to contact Detective Lawson at 360-432-5138.
NHTSA estimates that helmets saved the lives of 1,872 motorcyclists in 2017. If all motorcyclists had worn helmets, an additional 749 injuries could have been avoided.
Furthermore, helmets are estimated to be 37% effective in preventing fatal injuries to motorcycle riders and 41% for motorcycle passengers. Therefore, it is vital to know what to do when you or a family involved in a motorcycle accident.
