    Given the time of day, description of vehicle & driver, this sounds like a Vashon resident, enroute to the ferry. Bet there was a Grateful Dead tape in the player and a baggie of pot in the glovebox.

    What the hell DCS Foyle? The nice little phrase my Dad always told me about assuming really seems to apply to your comment.

    Given the position of Venus, as it is relative to the position of Mars, as well as the 234th place of Pi divided by the sum of the hypotenuse…

    DCSFoyle is reaching and unfortunate. If you don’t have anything useful, witty, funny, or even remotely relevant, then troll on elsewhere, man…

    Good description, I’ll be looking. It wasn’t an “accident,” though. That word implies no one is at fault. This driver is a hit-and-run criminal. I hope no one was hurt. The victim should stake out the same area at the same time.

      LC, funny you mention that. In our original writing/reporting, we never use the word “accident” because indeed that makes a judgment – we use “crash” most of the time, “collision” sometimes. In this case, though, we do not edit reports from the inbox, unless there’s a spelling or punctuation problem, or something else glaring. So that’s why this still says “accident.” – TR

    The vehicle in question never hit the brakes. Hit the van doing significant damage requiring victim to spend hours at ER and likely having to replace the van. if any one did see the vehicle that hit the van your help would be appreciated.

    And people wonder why they have such high insurance premiums…because of such concerned outstanding individuals who leave the scene of a horrible collision involving injuries

    There seems to be more and more of these hit and run incidents all the time. These offenders are probably drunk at the time. I would like to see drunk driving (and hit and run) taken much more seriously by our judicial system. If it were up to me a hit and run conviction would be a permanent revocation of the offenders driver’s license in this state.

    From the description, it also could have been William Wallace time traveling. More likely to be a Vashon resident than that, but still, we have to rule out the time traveling possibility :)

Sorry, comment time is over.
