MARYSVILLE — Police have surveillance video that they think could lead them to witnesses in a July 6 hit and run that took a man’s life.

Scott H. Williams, 52, of Marysville, was in a crosswalk near Fourth Street and I-5 at about 4:30 a.m. when a vehicle hit him and drove away. He died four hours later.

Marysville police on Friday said they’ve obtained security video from a nearby business. The video does not show Williams being struck, but it demonstrates there were people in the area who might be witnesses.

They released still images of two white box trucks and a light-colored car that were on the northbound onramp to I-5 about the time of the collision.

Investigators also know that the area is busy with a park-and-ride lot nearby and a Community Transit bus stop.

They want to talk with people who were in the vicinity during the time of the incident. They might have seen something that is important to the investigation, police said.

Earlier, they sought help finding a witness who ran to a nearby espresso stand and asked the barista to call 911.

Police urged anyone with information to call 360-363-8350.
