(EVERETT, WA) -- The driver of the vehicle believed to be involved in a hit and run accident which left a 47 year-old Index man and his dog dead has come forward, according to Snohomish County sheriff's spokeswoman Shari Ireton.
The driver’s name was not released. Ireton added that investigators have since seized the driver’s vehicle and are still investigating the incident.
On Saturday, August 4 at about 11:00 pm Index resident Stacey Lain Boyles was walking eastbound with his dog on the Index-Galena Road when at the 50700 block both Boyles and his dog were hit head-on by a vehicle and died later from injuries sustained at that accident. The driver of the vehicle did not stop to render assistance.
Investigators are still looking for a white van with a rack on top that may have been on the road around the time of the accident.
Anyone with information about the white van is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office anonymous tip line at 425-388-3845.
