Incident occurred on August 11 on SR 522, east of I-405.

The Washington State Patrol (WSP) is looking for witnesses to a vehicular assault that occurred at 5:41 PM on August 11 on eastbound State Road 522, east of I-405.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the incident occurred as a white Ford pick-up was traveling EB SR 522 in front of a motorcycle. The pick-up ‘brake checked’ the motorcycle, then proceeded to straddle the lane line in an attempt to prevent the motorcycle from passing. The motorcycle moved to the right lane as did the pick-up, which then hit the brakes hard which caused the motorcycle to take evasive action causing the rider to get thrown from the motorcycle.

The pick-up fled the scene without stopping. The rider suffered serious injuries which meets the threshold to charge the driver of the white pick-up with Felony Hit and Run and Vehicular Assault.

WSP detectives are looking for any information that may assist in identifying the white Ford pick-up and the driver. Please contact Detective Vik Mauro at (425) 401-7746 or by email at [email protected].
