Hit-and-run driver strikes mother and child in North Seattle

Seattle police are searching for a hit-and-run driver who hit a mother, her 9-month-old daughter and family dog while they were walking in North Seattle.

Police spokesman Patrick Michaud said a vehicle “clipped” the child’s stroller and left the mother hurt. The accident in the 14000 block of 19th Avenue Northeast, near the Jackson Park Golf Course, was reported shortly before 1:30 p.m.

“The driver hit the mom, she tumbled three or four times. The stroller was rolled over, but because the baby was strapped in, the baby did not suffer any kind of injuries,” said Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore. Moore did not know the dog’s condition.

The 32-year-old mother was taken to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Moore said she was conscious and alert after the crash.

Witnesses provided different descriptions of the suspect’s vehicle — either a maroon Acura or a dark-brown Mercedes — but all said it had a cracked windshield. Witnesses also described the driver as an Asian male with spiked black hair.
