Police seeking public’s help finding van from SeaTac hit & run


A pedestrian was hit by a vehicle at S. 136th Street & Military Road S. early Thursday morning, March 22, and police are seeking the public’s help.

Police say that at around 1:30 a.m., Deputies responded to the 13600 block of Military Road S. to a hit and run collision where a male victim in his 30’s was lying on the ground un-responsive.

The victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center with life threatening injuries.

Police now have a photo of the suspect vehicle and need help locating it. It is a white cargo style van with a very noticeable roof rack on the roof:

If anyone knows the whereabouts of this van please call the King County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency line of 206/296-3311 or 911.

The roadway was closed for a while, and King County Sheriff’s Office Major Accident Response and Reconstruction (MARR) investigators were on scene.

Photographer Aaron Wells found the victim:

“I was crossing Military on S. 135th when I noticed the unmistakable shape of a person in the roadway. Called 911 and stayed with him until medics arrived.

What surprised me was the number of people who drove right past us as we were there in the middle of the road, one of them missing the victim’s foot by only inches. Only one person stopped and waited with us.

Was very impressed by the fire and medical response. There seemed to be a dozen or more, moving nearly as one, tending to the victim with speed and efficiency. Those guys are truly amazing.”
