READER REPORT: Double hit-and-run on Puget Ridge

More trouble on Puget Ridge – the photos and report were just texted to us, and flesh out a bit of scanner traffic we heard a short time ago:

My fence and bushes were just destroyed by a hit-and-run driver fleeing the scene of a prior hit-and-run at 16th and Dawson. They left behind their GMC bumper.

The texter is near 22nd/21st SW, and explains:

The guy hit the first car and was chased by the son-in-law of the car’s owner. They hit our property while fleeing the person who was chasing them. They were heading down the hill toward Delridge. Probably long gone over the bridge.

Or – they could have stayed on-peninsula. So be on the lookout for a GMC vehicle missing a bumper like that.

    Or they could be the accident that has the bridge closed?

      This is not related – we just started getting texts about the bridge crash, which happened after 5 am, according to the SFD log. We have started morning-traffic coverage early as a result.

    It seems like 16th and Dawson would be a great location for a police station.  Or at least a camera.  All the bonehead criminals seem to end up wrecking on that turn.

Sorry, comment time is over.
