Renton Police seek ID of critically hurt pedestrian

Renton police are asking the public’s help in identifying a woman who was struck by a vehicle as she was walking or jogging along Lake Washington Boulevard Saturday morning.

The woman gave her name as “Rose” or “Ros” to people at the scene before lapsing into unconsciousness, Renton police said. She was not carrying identification.

She was struck about 8:45 a.m. in the 4000 block of Lake Washington Boulevard and knocked into bushes along the roadway.

Police described her as a white or light-skinned black female in her 30’s or 40’s. She was wearing light blue running shoes and white shorts.

Police said she was taken to Harborview Medical Center and was unconscious and in critical condition.

The driver initially fled but, according to KING-TV, later returned and was arrested on investigation of vehicular assault.

People who may know the victim are asked to call Renton Police at 425-430-7500 and refer to case 12-6831.
