Woman killed in Renton hit-and-run

A 46-year-old woman was hit and killed Tuesday morning by an unknown vehicle that fled the scene.

The pedestrian was crossing at the 84th Avenue South crosswalk at the northbound state Route 167 on-ramp, according to Washington State Patrol.

Multiple hit-and-runs have occurred in the last week in Renton, including a woman walking her dog Dec. 4, and a 12-year-old boy walking home from school Dec. 12.

The ramp was closed for an extended period of time this morning. Trooper Rick Johnson tweeted the vehicle involved did not stop and this will be investigated as a felony hit-and-run fatality. The ramp reopened around 8:30 a.m.

No other information is available at this time.
