South Seattle Hit and Run Suspect Sought by Police

A car involved in a pedestrian hit and run in Seattle is being sought by Seattle police. The car struck a 6 year old girl at the intersection of South Henderson Street and Seward Park Ave South, on Thursday afternoon.

According to witnesses, the vehicle was driving south on Seward Park Avenue South when it “veered” into the oncoming lanes and hit a girl walking in a crosswalk. Seattle policewoman Renee Witt said that the impact launched the girl approximately 20 feet in the air. It also knocked out several of the girl’s teeth and left her with nonfatal injuries. The car then left the scene.

According to police spokesman Mark Jamieson, the car involved in the Seattle car crash could be a Lincoln. Police don’t have the fleeing vehicle’s license plate, but witnesses said the two men in the car appeared to be in their late teens or early 20s, Jamieson said.

Seattle Fire Department spokeswoman Dana Vander Houwen said that the injured child was conscious when taken to the Harborview Medical Center. Police said the girl is in stable condition.
