A woman in her 60s suffered minor injuries after a black Nissan Maxima hit her at around 5:45 p.m. on May 30, at the intersection of King Street and Maynard Avenue.
Bystanders Ali Lee and Tianna Lee rushed to the woman’s aid and called 911.
Northwest Asian Weekly publisher Assunta Ng was one of the eyewitnesses. She said when the car hit the woman, the impact sent her flying onto the hood of the car, then she fell to the ground. “I could hear her screaming.” Ng believes the woman’s walker may have absorbed some of the impact from the crash and saved the woman’s life.
The victim was transported to Harborview.
Other eyewitnesses said the vehicle stopped for a few seconds, then took off.
Police say the car had temporary license plates and there was no reliable description of the driver.
As of press time, the hit and run driver was still at large.
