LAKE STEVENS — A Lake Stevens boy suffered multiple broken bones in his legs Thursday after being struck by a motorcycle in a hit-and-run, according to police.
The driver, a 36-year-old Marysville man, was being held Friday for investigation of vehicular assault. He also had two misdemeanor arrest warrants.
The man “ran over a 10-year-old who was crossing (the) street … tried to run away, showed no remorse,” according to an arrest report made public Friday.
The boy had just exited his school bus on 99th Avenue NE just after 4 p.m.
A Lake Stevens police officer was driving nearby and was passed by a motorcyclist going an estimated 40 mph in a 25 mph zone, the report says.
The officer made a U-turn and saw the motorcycle was missing a license plate. He began to follow and the bike reportedly sped up to 75 mph. He lost sight of it on a narrow curve. He didn’t observe the crash.
When the officer arrived at the scene, the boy had been struck and the motorcyclist had lost control. The man allegedly ran but then returned and was taken into custody, the officer reported.
The boy’s injuries required a tourniquet. He was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and was described Friday as stable and recovering. He is a student in the Lake Stevens School District.
Before being booked, the suspect was treated at an area hospital for what appeared to be a broken collar bone. Officers indicated they were seeking a blood test.
