Snohomish County Sheriff’s detectives are seeking the driver of the car that struck both Mr. Broyles and his dog.
“On Saturday, August 4 at approximately 11:00 pm a 47 year-old Index man was walking eastbound with his dog on Index-Galena Rd. At the 50700 block, both the man and dog were struck head-on by a vehicle. The driver of that vehicle fled the scene,” said Shari Ireton, spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
Mr. Broyles was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where he later died of blunt force injuries to the torso. The Medical Examiner has ruled the cause of death as an accident.
The dog, which also died later, was transported to Pilchuck Veterinary Center.
