West Seattle Crime Watch: 35th SW hit-run driver sought

If you’ve driven along 35th SW in the Westwood area today, you might have seen the aftermath of a hit-run crash early this morning: Around 3 am, four parked vehicles were hit in the 8800 block, just north of the Gasco station at SW Henderson, by what was described as a white SUV. It was last seen going eastbound on Henderson, according to police, who searched but didn’t find it. We photographed two of the hit vehicles (above) after hearing from area residents; then while writing this story, we heard directly from Nicole, who shared the photo of a third vehicle below, explaining all four belonged to members of her family (including one who was housesitting), and hoping someone can help solve the crime:

My niece’s KIA was hit first and then pushed up and along the rest of our vehicles, a large Ford pickup truck, white Toyota wagon, and a silver Isuzu pickup truck. Unfortunately most of our closest neighbors were also out of town. We are looking for any witnesses that didn’t come forward to the police when they were here this am.

Call 911 if you have any information about the hit-and-run vehicle and/or who was in it.

    So many hit and runs. Is this what we have become?

    With all the hit and run property damage is bad engough. But hitting a person or a motorcyclist and leave them lying in the street to die, just to you dont get a ticket or DUI?

    as a motorcyclist, a bicyclist, and a father and a car driver, this makes me sad for all of us.

    Probably the same person Judge Ronald Kessler lowered the bail for last week.

    Heard the crash…woke me up. Then heard a vehicle immediately take off. Sounded like it turned quickly on Trenton going east, and then all went silent. 30 seconds in all probably right at 3 a.m.

    This is a block from me. Please let us know if there is any way we can help.

    I didn’t see this but I heard it. As the vehicle drove away, I could tell that it was damaged, dragging along the street.

    I had a rental car out front of 25th and Henderson on 7/22. Went out the next morning and the driver’s side mirror was smashed off. Is this due to the Bus or several driver’s not paying attention?! This seemd to happen far to often!!

Sorry, comment time is over.
