King County Sheriff’s deputies say they’ve found the pickup involved in a hit-and-run that killed a woman in North Bend early New Year’s morning.

A Ford pickup with a large dent and headlight knocked out on its front right side was found around 4:30 p.m. in North Bend. Because the hit-and-run driver is still at large, the Sheriff’s Office isn’t releasing any other information about the specific area where the vehicle was found, said Sgt. Cindi West.

“This is still an active investigation, and we really want to get the bad guy here,” West said.

A headlight fitting the truck was found at the hit-and-run scene. The woman who was killed, Lucinda Fisher, 57, had exited a vehicle with a man near the area just before the accident. After an argument, they walked in separate directions on the road.

When the man walked back to the car and went looking for her, she was found in a ditch.

Anyone with more information on the incident or who knows someone who drives a similar vehicle can call the Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311. People with information that leads up to an arrest can also call Crime Stoppers for a $1,000 reward at 800-222-8477.
