MAPLE VALLEY, WA — Investigators shared findings Friday on the vehicle of interest involved in a July hit-and-run collision that killed a 53-year-old male jogger in Maple Valley, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
The Maple Valley man was found deceased early morning July 18th in the area of 21401 244th Avenue Southeast. He was believed to have been fatally struck by a vehicle at around 5:00 a.m.
The Sheriff’s Office Major Accident Response and Reconstruction (MARR) team were able to use a combination of headlight fragments, surveillance, and other clues to narrow the search to a gray Toyota Camry manufactured between 2001 to 2006, or similar. Detectives say the Camry should have sustained headlight and/or hood damages in the crash.
The unit also believe the at-fault Camry was traveling with another vehicle that day around 6:15 a.m. in an area around the 22700 block of Southeast 216th Way.
