Witnesses needed in fatal pedestrian collision on Interstate 5

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Before 1:00 am yesterday morning a female pedestrian died of her injuries in the southbound lanes of Interstate 5 after being struck by multiple vehicles.

At 12:41 am Saturday, April 28, 2012 the Washington State Patrol 911 dispatch received reports of a pedestrian standing alone on the side of the NE 145th overpass for southbound Interstate 5 over traffic.

Troopers arrived at the scene to find a 17 year old female pedestrian with fatal injuries in the center lane of southbound Interstate 5. Witnesses stated the female was struck by passenger cars and a semi truck that continued on. Investigators believe that several vehicles stuck the female but continued on potentially unaware they had struck a person. 

Washington State Patrol detectives are asking for witnesses and any persons that may have been involved in the pedestrian collision to contact Detective Mederios at 425-401-7719.

Initial reports listed her home town as Tukwila.
