After the collision, the semi involved drove off.
The Washington State Police are asking for the public’s help to identify and locate a semi-trailer involved in a hit-and-run in Seattle this morning.
At approximately 4:48 AM this morning, a 2001 Chrysler Town and Country van was traveling southbound I-5, just south of the convention center. This vehicle made a lane change and struck the rear end of a semi-trailer that was also traveling southbound I-5.
The van then struck the barrier and rolled onto its side which resulted in the driver sustaining a broken arm and other possible injuries. The semi continued south without stopping. The Seattle Fire Department did an outstanding job extricating the driver and transporting him to Harborview.
The State Patrol is seeking witnesses to the collision along with any identifying information for the semi. Please call the tip line at (425) 401-7741.
