Pedestrian struck by hit-and-run driver downtown

A 60-year-old woman was hospitalized after being struck by a hit-and-run driver Friday night in downtown Seattle.

Police say the woman was in the crosswalk at Virginia Street and Second Avenue around 11:30 p.m when she was hit by a tan Honda Accord.

She was taken to the Harborview Medical Center with broken bones.

According to police, the Accord was traveling east along Virginia when it hit the woman. The car stopped for a second, then continued east without stopping to help the woman to provide information.

Police found the car parked and unoccupied a short distance from the owner’s residence. Officers impounded the car for investigators.

Detectives ask anyone who may have witnessed the collision to call 911 and speak with an officer.
