LYNNWOOD, Wash. -- Police were searching for the driver who struck and killed a pedestrian in a Lynnwood hit-and-run Thursday night.
Witnesses said around 10:30 p.m. the driver, heading south on SR 99, hit a man walking across the road in the 17200 block. The driver then did a U-turn and took off, according to police.
The man hit was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he later died.
Police asked for the public's help in finding a silver-colored Lexus with significant front-end damage, including a broken windshield.
Investigators have been gathering what they hope will be helpful evidence, including footage from surveillance cameras from a nearby coffee stand.
People who work at nearby businesses said the intersection is a very busy one, with thousands of cars traveling 45 miles per hour or faster every day.
“That person who ran should really come forward,” said Alan Tagle, who works at the nearby Paradise Espresso. “There's families involved and you have to make sure all questions get answered.”
