Man struck by hit-and-run driver in Shoreline dies
A Seattle man who was critically hurt after being struck by a hit-and-run driver on Feb. 19 has died.
King County sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West said today that the 60-year-old man died on Thursday night. West said the man was crossing in the 14600 block of Aurora Avenue North about 8:30 p.m. when he was struck by a van. The van driver pulled over after the crash, but then took off, West added.
Witnesses described the van as a white, full-size, possibly a Ford or a Chevrolet, with a work rack on top. The van should have sustained damage to its right, front corner because of the crash, West said. The right headlight likely was broken
There were two men in the van, a witness told the King County Sheriff’s Office.
Anyone who knows anything about the crash is asked to call 911.
