No injuries in Monroe hit-and-run crash

MONROE – Police have located a driver who reportedly fled a crash scene south of Monroe on Saturday evening.

The one-car crash was reported about 6 p.m. along Highway 203, near the intersection with Tualco Road.

A 2001 Dodge Ram missed a left turn, left the road and struck a pole, according to a Washington State Patrol memo.

The driver, a 21-year-old Snohomish woman, reportedly took off to a nearby home.

She and a passenger, a 25-year-old Monroe man, were unhurt.

The crash, which also caused a brush fire, remains under investigation as a potential case of speeding, driving under the influence and hit-and-run.
