KENT, WA – A 74-year-old man is in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center after a driver in a Dodge Charger hit him near the intersection of 220th Street and Military Road on Monday.
KOMO News reports that the 32-year-old driver of the Dodge was initially pulled over by a State Trooper for speeding in the area. The driver gave the trooper a false name and birthdate and sped away when asked for his real information.
Shortly after speeding from the trooper, the driver hit the pedestrian as he was walking in the area. The driver then exited his vehicle and attempted to run away on foot but was soon apprehended.
Officials told KOMO that the driver was wanted for violating probation.
