SNOQUALMIE, Wash. -- A person who was possibly trying to flag down help for a disabled vehicle near the SR-18/I-90 interchange was struck and critically injured by a hit-and-run driver Thursday night.

Trooper Rick Johnson said it happened about 11:40 p.m. The victim was outside of a disabled vehicle parked in the gore point from eastbound SR-18 to eastbound I-90, possibly trying to get help when the driver of a white sedan struck the victim and fled the scene.

"We want people to be vigilant and look for this type of vehicle," said Trooper Rick Johnson.

The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in critical condition.

Troopers are now trying to find the white sedan's driver to face felony hit-and-run charges.

"We have one witness, a semi-driver that observed it, but not close enough to tell what kind of car it was or to get a license plate," said Johnson.

Anyone who might have information about the crash, or might know of a vehicle that matches investigators' description, which now likely also has front-end damage, is being urged to call the Washington State Patrol.
