MARYSVILLE — Troopers were looking for a white pickup truck they believe might have been involved in a hit-and-run crash involving a pedestrian Friday morning in Marysville.
A Seattle man, 55, suffered what were believed to be serious but not life-threatening injuries after being struck on the southbound ramp from Fourth Street to I-5, Washington State Patrol trooper Heather Axtman said. The man was taken to a local hospital with broken bones.
The crash was reported around 7 a.m.
The pickup is believed to be a full-sized white Dodge. It was seen pulling away from the crash scene, Axtman said.
A witness reported the pickup drove onto I-5 but at one point pulled over before continuing on, the trooper said.
Earlier this week the state patrol issued a news release appealing for help solving an increasing number of hit-and-run crashes across the state.
“Even though we don’t have all the reasons people run away, we do have a way you can help,” troopers said in a press release. “Get as much information from the vehicle as you can, specifically the license plate.”
“If you’re safe and in a position to get the license plate of the running vehicle, that will be the most valuable piece of the puzzle that you can provide us,” troopers wrote.
