Running for “Red”, joggers support hit and run victim
WEST SEATTLE – One week after a female jogger was injured by a hit and run vehicle in West Seattle, fellow joggers came out in support of the 54-year-old woman nicknamed “Red”. Dozens of fellow joggers ran a 5K run along Alki in West Seattle Saturday morning. Seattle Police reported that on Saturday June 8th, just after 7 a.m., the woman was jogging in the 2300 block of Fairmount Avenue SW when a vehicle apparently stuck her.
The driver of the unknown vehicle failed to stop. Seattle Fire Department medics treated and then transported the woman to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Today’s 5K run brought out friends and family of the injured jogger. Seattle Police request that anyone with information about the collision and the vehicle involved should call (206) 684-8927.
