SEATTLE — A Washington State Patrol spokeswoman says a man pushed a woman into oncoming traffic Monday evening in the Seattle area and she was hit and injured by a car.

The patrol’s Julie Judson told KOMO-TV that police are looking for the man, who ran off.

Judson said the man and woman were walking along the shoulder of State Route 900 near South 129th Street when they got into an argument and the man pushed the woman into the road. One car swerved and missed her while a second car hit her.

The 44-year-old woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center with what were described as life-threatening injuries.
