Woman killed in hit and run near North Bend

UPDATE: Jan. 2 at 2:35 p.m. | King County sheriff’s detectives believe the person responsible for a fatal hit and run near North Bend early Tuesday morning was driving a 1987 to 1991 Ford Bronco or Ford F150 pickup.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindi West said that detectives also believe the pickup will have right front end damage, not damage to the left front as was initially reported.

Original post: The woman, believed to be in her 50s, died in a hit and run incident early near North Bend and police are looking for the pickup and driver who hit her.

 The incident began with an argument between a woman and a man in a group of people who had been on a night out and were riding in a car in the North Bend area, according to Sgt. Cindi West with the King County Sheriff’s Office. The man, who was driving, got out of the car with the woman. The pair started walking in different directions on 394th Place Southeast north of North Bend Way.

The man eventually walked back to the car and he and the others drove around looking for the woman. They found her a short time later  in a ditch near the 10200 block of 394 Place Southeast. She had been struck and killed by a vehicle.

The vehicle that hit her left debris at the accident scene, include a left headlight that appeared to be from a full size pickup. Investigators believe the truck suffered significant damage.

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-3311.
