Sumner, WA—Police are asking for anyone with any information about a hit and run on Saturday, October 5, to leave a message for detectives at 253-299-5678 (253-299-TIPS).
An anonymous donor is offering $5,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, prosecution and conviction of the subject of this investigation. The flyer is attached.
The attached surveillance video may help the public identify the vehicle involved. (Ed Note: The video is also posted here: http://youtu.be/hc6LzWuQoog)
The video is an mp4 format file and shows the vehicle traveling from left to right across the screen on the East Valley Highway.
Sumner Police are very thankful for the neighboring jurisdictions who worked to help enhance the video for better viewing. Now, the Department hopes the media and public can help them identify the vehicle or determine a more complete description of the vehicle, which appears to be a dark small sedan or sports car. The vehicle will have front-end damage and possible damage to the windshield.
In addition, police are hopeful that the occupants of a witness vehicle also contact the Police Department. This second vehicle (not visible in the attached video footage) appears to be a silver Subaru Outback that was driving southbound on the East Valley Highway just after the incident occurred.
