North Bend teen sentenced to 15 months for fatal hit and run

A 19-year-old man, who was texting and speeding when he hit a woman with his pickup near North Bend and then fled, was sentenced in King County Superior Court this afternoon to 15 months in prison.

Cody J. Eads pleaded guilty last month to vehicular homicide (disregard for the safety of others) in connection with the death of Lucinda Pieczatkowski, 57, of North Bend, on Jan. 1, 2013.

Pieczatkowski was walking along Stone Quarry Road around 2 a.m. when she was hit by a truck and killed. The Eads’ family attorney contacted the King County Sheriff’s Office the next day and told them that the pickup involved in the crash was at the Eads’ residence.

Detectives impounded the pickup, which had damage consistent with striking a pedestrian, the Sheriff’s Office said.

It took detectives several months to collect enough evidence to determine who was behind the wheel, sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West told Seattle Times news partner KING 5. Eads was charged in August.

“I’ve got to tell you, we did not have a whole lot of cooperation on this case. There were a lot of people who supposedly knew who the driver was and what happened, but they were reluctant to come forward and tell us,” West told KING 5.
