ELK PLAIN, WA (August 9, 2018) – A woman was found dead Thursday morning following a suspected hit-and-run crash at 320th Street East.
According to the Washington State Patrol, the incident happened sometime between 8:30 AM and 9:30 AM. 66-year-old Eatonville resident, Susan Rainwater, was riding her bike on the right shoulder of northbound State Route 7 when a vehicle struck her from behind.
The driver fled from the scene, leaving the injured woman in the road.
More than an hour later, an unidentified person noticed Rainwater’s crumpled bicycle and later found her lifeless body in a ditch. State troopers received a report about the incident at about 10:21 AM, and they arrived at the scene to initiate an investigation.
Responding officers found parts belonging to a black car near the site of the crash. It is also likely that the hit-and-run vehicle sustained front-end damage in the collision.
