1 Victim Hospitalized after Seattle Hit-and-Run Accident near West Seattle Bridge

 
SEATTLE, WA (May 8, 2020) – On May 5, a truck crash on 5 Freeway left a WSDOT worker with injuries, the authorities revealed.
 
Trooper Rick Johnson revealed that the crash on northbound lanes near the West Seattle Bridge exit about 7:00 a.m. involved four cars. Due to the crash, a WSDOT worker responded to the scene to help clean the debris. However, a passing empty car hauler trailer that was being pulled by a white truck hit them in the leg.
 
According to Trooper Johnson, the truck driver didn’t pull over to check what happened. Meanwhile, the medical responders transported the injured WSDOT worker to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of a possible broken leg.
 
The initial crash led authorities to shut down two lanes. Reports also revealed that the initial crash resulted in minor injures. However, the roadway has since reopened to traffic.
 
As the police continue to investigate the collision, Johnson encourages anyone who has information about the crash or the truck driver, to contact the Washington State Patrol. Johnson also said that it’s probable that the truck driver didn’t notice that he hit the WSDOT worker.
 
May this incident be a reminder for all motorists to drive responsibly. Drivers should also keep in mind that distracted driving, speeding, and failing to yield will lead to dangerous road accidents.
