A 24-year-old Kenmore woman accused of a fatal hit-and-run crash early Monday morning in Kenmore was apparently the person who alerted authorities to the incident, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

The woman, who is not being named because she hasn’t been charged, was ordered held today in lieu of $25,000 bail.

The woman allegedly struck Joseph D. Humphreys, 31, of Kenmore around 1:30 a.m. while he was walking in the 18400 block of 62nd Avenue Northeast.
