West Seattle Crime Watch: Hit-run witness search

Christine wonders if anybody saw this happen:

I’m hoping because West Seattle is such a tight community that someone will have witnessed this event. I was driving west from downtown Seattle via Spokane Street at approximately 6:30 p.m. last night. Where the two lanes on Spokane street merge into one for a brief span for construction, a full size white truck merged into the side of my vehicle and then sped off up the Admiral hill. I got a partial license plate number and a hit-and-run report was filed but no one has been caught at this point. If you were a witness to this event or see a full size white truck with red paint down the passenger side and/or running boards, please give me or the SW Precinct any information. My family has called West Seattle home for a long time and we value the integrity and small-town care that is ever present. Thank you for any assistance in this matter.

The partial plate number starts with A4142, according to Christine.


  1. The police can’t find a match with that much license plate?? Did they tell they couldn’t check? I mean, how many white trucks have that many characters in common? I’m sorry I can’t help; that must be very frustrating. I will be looking.

  3. Sorry, didn’t catch the rule-breaking comment (now deleted) till FS’s comment. No victim-blaming here. Hit and run is illegal, period. – TR

  4. i will keep an eye out as well, it cant be too difficult to catch if we all keep open eyes. Red on White seems like an obvious contrast..
