Hit-and-run drivers come in all shapes and sizes — and modes of transport.
In this case, the Washington State Patrol is seeking the bicyclist in this photo because they suspect she was involved in a hit-and-run collision with another bicyclist on April 30 on the west end of the Interstate 90 Floating Bridge.
The victim was riding east on the bike path around 3:15 p.m.when she was struck by the cyclist in this photo, who was heading west, the State Patrol said. The victim fell to the pavement and suffered serious injuries to her elbow and hip.
According to the victim, the hit-and-run cyclist may have been distracted by a disabled motorist in the westbound lanes and veered to the left before hitting her.
The bicyclist initially stopped and asked the victim if she “was OK” and if she “needed anything.” She then rode off west toward Seattle, the State Patrol said.
The wanted bicyclist is described as white, approximately 25 to 35 years old, with sandy blond shoulder-length hair. She was riding a Fuji Absolute bicycle and was not wearing a helmet.
Washington State Patrol spokesman Chris Webb says people involved in collisions are required to leave contact information.
The cyclist, or anyone with information about the crash, is asked to call Detective Ruth Medeiros at 425-401-7719.
