EVERETT, WA – A pedestrian was seriously injured by a hit-and-run driver in the 4700 block of Colby Avenue on Friday evening.
According to KIRO 7 News, the 39-year-old male pedestrian was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries. It was reported on Saturday that he would recover from his injuries.
Local authorities received a tip while investigating the crash about a vehicle that might have been involved. They discovered a 2001 Chevy Cruze in the 1600 block of Virginia Avenue that had damage consistent with a pedestrian collision.
The vehicle led them to a 31-year-old woman, whom they arrested for the hit-and-run as well as driving with a suspended license. She admitted under questioning to having hit the man and fled the scene.
Colby Avenue was closed temporarily in that area while police investigated.
