Detectives seeking witnesses to a Fatal Hit and Run

At approximately 1:47am on February 2, 2018, the Washington State Patrol (WSP) responded to a report of a serious injury collision on the ramp from Des Moines Memorial Drive to EB SR 518.

A Utility truck, similar to the picture at right, was traveling up the ramp, drifted onto the left shoulder and struck the Blazer and the passenger.
