TACOMA, WA (February 22, 2018) – Just before 7:30 PM on Wednesday evening, a woman was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver on the 8400 block of South Hosmer Street, just off the northbound Interstate 5 exit for S 84th Street.
 
According to reports, the unidentified victim had just left a neighborhood grocery store and was crossing outside of a crosswalk in the northbound lanes of S Hosmer, when she was struck by a vehicle traveling southbound.
 
The car did not stop or slow down, and fled the scene with the woman lying in the road.

It is likely to have significant damage to the front-end, said Tacoma Police Department spokesperson Officer Loretta Cool.
