SEATTLE, WA — Authorities are searching for two victims believed to have been injured in a pair of pedestrian crashes early Friday, November 26, in north Seattle, according to KOMO News.

The first incident unfolded on North 107th Street, just west of Aurora Avenue North, at around 1:50 a.m.

Seattle Police Department officials say that both surveillance footage and cell phone video show a vehicle appearing to target and intentionally strike a female pedestrian. Several bystanders are observed assisting the victim before a separate vehicle arrives on the scene. That driver is seen carrying the woman to the passenger seat of the vehicle and then driving away from the area.

A second vehicular assault was reported in the 9600 block of Aurora Avenue North, and has been determined to have taken place at around the same time as the first incident. Cell phone footage of the event indicate multiple suspects in a car targeted a pedestrian walking in the bus lane. The pedestrian is struck from the back, and the impact of the crash sends the victim over the hood of the striking car.

Authorities say that neither suspect vehicle remained at the scene in the incidents. As of this writing, detectives have also not been able to locate or identify the victims who appeared to be injured.

Anyone with information is urged to call the SPD’s Violent Crimes Tip Line at (206) 233-5000.
