At approximately 10:10pm on Thursday, October 26, 2017 the Washington State Patrol received a report of a serious collision NB I-5 just south of NE 85th.

Witnesses stated that two or three SUVs were racing, struck the BMW SUV and fled the scene. It is unclear whether the vehicle that was struck was involved in the racing prior to the collision. The two vehicles that fled were described as a silver BMW X5 and another SUV. Witnesses also stated that two or three passengers fled from the damaged vehicle prior to troopers arriving on scene.

Due to the nature of injuries, WSP detectives are seeking the drivers of the two fleeing SUVs for Felony Hit and Run. Anyone with information in reference to this incident is asked to contact Detective Ruth Medeiros at 425-401-7719 or by email
