West Seattle jogger injured in hit-and-run

A 54-year-old woman sustained what police are calling life-threatening injuries after a hit-and-run collision in West Seattle.

Police responded to a call at about 7:04 a.m. Saturday from a passerby who reported a woman — apparently a jogger — lying unconscious on the side of the road in the 2300 block of Fairmount Avenue Southwest. There were no other vehicles or people around when they arrived.

Seattle Police believe the woman was running when she was apparently struck by a vehicle. It was unclear what kind of vehicle it was and could have been a car, bicycle, rollerblades or something else, said Det. Jeff Kappel with Seattle Police.

Medics treated the woman at the scene and then transported her to Harborview Medical Center.

The Seattle Police Department is encouraging anyone with information about the incident or who may know the identity or location of the suspect to call 911 or Seattle Police.
