(TACOMA, WA.) – Pierce County Sheriff''s office traffic investigators need your help to identify the suspect and vehicle used in a hit and run that resulted in two pedestrians being seriously injured.
Just after 7:10 p.m. on Friday January 19, 2018 deputies responded to a 911 call reporting that a vehicle had struck two men at 108th St. South and Croft St. South in Parkland.
“The two men were reportedly on the ground moaning and the vehicle had fled the scene,” sais a sheriff's office statement.
When the first deputy arrived he observed two men on the ground on the south shoulder of the road and the men “were in obvious pain.”
One was drifting in and out of consciousness from a head injury and the other suffered a shoulder injury.
The deputy was able to talk to the victim who had the injured shoulder. He reported that he and the other victim had been walking westbound on the side of 108th St. South when an oncoming vehicle veered toward them, crossed over the fogline and struck the two victims before continuing eastbound on Croft Street.
A woman walking with the men was not injured. She reported that the suspect vehicle may have been a newer white pickup truck, possibly a Toyota Tacoma.
Both of the male victims were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment of broken bones, lacerations and internal bleeding.
Deputies are looking for any information on the driver and truck responsible for this hit and run.
The truck should have damage to the front passenger side of the vehicle. If you have any information please contact #PCSD or Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
