The Washington State Patrol received reports around 8:05 a.m. Wednesday, June 20 of a collision on southbound state Route 167 near Interstate 405.

When troopers arrived on scene, they discovered a 50-year-old male from Sammamish was seriously injured. According to a media release, the man was driving a motorcycle when a blue sedan changed lanes forcing him to collide with the jersey barrier.

The release added he was ejected from his motorcycle after the impact with the wall.

The sedan reportedly continued driving south without stopping, according to the release.

The Washington State Patrol is now looking for the driver of that vehicle. They are being sought for Felony Hit and Run, the release added.

At the time of the collision, nothing other than the sedan being a blue color was obtained.

The motorcyclist was stabilized by Renton Fire L864 and King County Medic One. He was transported to Harborview Medical Center.

Detectives are seeking more information regarding the collision and in search of the driver. Contact Detective Vik Mauro at 425-401-7746 or email at victoria.mauro@wsp.wa.gov.
