Renton Police Department is seeking assistance in identifying a male driver involved in a hit and run this morning, according to a Facebook post.
At around 8:30 a.m. the female victim was crossing the street with her dog when she was struck by a truck that failed to stop at a sign at Northeast 12th and Edmonds Avenue Northeast.
The male truck driver left without stopping.
“The fact that the suspect driver struck the mom, then fled without rendering any assistance or making contact with police in any way is unsettling,” the post read.
The truck is described as an early 2000’s Chevy Silverado that was silver or tan.
The victim had just dropped off her children at McKnight Middle School, according to the post. She was transported to the hospital and sustained significant injuries.
“Obviously given the brutality of this crime, we would like to get the suspect identified as soon as possible,” the post read. “No other information is being released at this time.”
Police are asking those who were in the area and observed the collision or have any information on the driver or vehicle please to contact the Renton Police at 425-430-7579.
