Police seek driver who hit teen in South Seattle

Seattle police are asking the public’s assistance in finding a driver who seriously injured a teenage pedestrian on Martin Luther King Way South about 8 p.m. Friday.

Seattle police spokeswoman Detective Renee Witt said the 15-year-old boy who was hit sustained a life-threatening head injury. He and his brother were crossing Martin Luther King Way South near South Walden Street.

A southbound car hit the 15-year-old, then left the scene. The driver did not provide information or assistance, Witt said.

Seattle Fire Department medics responded, taking the teen to Harborview Medical Center.

The vehicle is described as a dark grey (charcoal) Honda, possibly a newer model.  It may have a missing driver’s door mirror and broken front headlight, or other damage.

Anyone with information about this vehicle or the incident is asked to call 9-1-1. Anonymous tips are welcome.
