A 23 year-old man was arrested for driving under the influence following a fatal hit-and-run in north Seattle early Sunday morning.
Just before 2 a.m., a witness saw a 32 year-old man sitting cross-legged in the southbound lane of 15th Avenue Northeast near Northeast 104th Street, his head cradled in his hands, according to Seattle police. As the witness approached the man, a 1997 Infiniti Q45 hit and killed the man, according to police.
The car drove off without stopping, but it was found about a half-mile away, at Northeast 98th Street. Officers determined the 23 year-old driver appeared to be drunk, and was arrested for DUI and booked in the King County Jail for investigation of vehicular homicide and hit-and-run. Neither the driver nor his female passenger was hurt.
