SEATAC, Wash. — The Washington State Patrol said troopers had arrested a suspect believed involved in a deadly hit-and-run crash Friday morning in SeaTac.
The suspect was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of felony hit-and-run resulting in a death.
Washington State Patrol troopers say a Chevy Blazer stopped before 2 a.m. on an on-ramp from Des Moines Memorial Drive to eastbound SR 518 after the car ran out of gas. The passenger got out of the Blazer and then was hit and killed by an oncoming truck that drifted onto the shoulder.
The truck left the scene of the crime, but was later found by authorities.
Troopers say the 44-year-old male passenger of the Chevy Blazer was taken to Seattle's Harborview Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Anyone with information about the crash or the location of the vehicle are asked to contact WSP.
