Tacoma, WA (November 26, 2020) – Wednesday evening, a bicyclist sustained injuries in a hit-and-run crash on State Route 507 near Roy.
The Washington State Patrol reports a vehicle was southbound when it hit the bicyclist parked on the right shoulder of SR 507. Then it drove south, away from the scene.

Police continue to investigate the crash.
Car accidents are caused by an unlimited number of reasons, but a driver’s failure to be fully aware is a primary one. So if you find yourself unable to safely operate a vehicle, you can always use an Uber or a Lyft instead. Failure to follow all the traffic laws could lead to serious consequences for yourself and for others.
The most valuable step you can take in response to a vehicle crash is hiring a personal injury attorney. Mark Sweet, a personal injury attorney at Sweet Lawyers, says that serious car accident cases may call for a separate investigation spearheaded by an experienced lawyer fighting on behalf of a party. Oftentimes, injuries are not reported until it is too late.
