At 3:10am Sunday morning, November 5, 2017, 43 year old Joaquin Gauna of Seattle was standing behind his disabled vehicle on I-5 in Shoreline.

He had been able to pull over to the side of the freeway, just north of NE 175th on southbound I-5.

The driver of a blue 2003 Honda drifted onto the right shoulder, striking first Gauna and then his vehicle. The vehicle ended up in lane one and Gauna was thrown onto the fogline.

The Honda driver kept going for about 300 feet until his vehicle became disabled. The driver fled the scene.

Gauna was taken to Harborview with serious injuries.
