SEATAC, WA — Police are in active search of two people seen to have fled the scene of a hit-and-run crash on Sunday that occurred between four vehicles traveling along Interstate 5 northbound in SeaTac, according to KOMO News.

The incident began around 3:50 p.m. when a 2003 Lexus spun its tires on the right shoulder of I-5 northbound by 200th Street, according to Washington State Patrol investigators. The Lexus then made a sudden left turn into traffic, striking a 2004 Acura, which caused the Acura to slam into a 2020 Toyota, sending it into a guardrail. The Acura was then rear-ended by a 2021 Dodge Ram pickup. 

Investigators say that soon after the Lexus arrived at a stop, its driver and passenger abandoned the vehicle to take off on foot. 

The crash left a 26-year-old Tacoma woman who was a passenger in the Acura injured, requiring her to be taken for treatment at the hospital. 

The Lexus, Acura and Toyota were all determined to be totaled.
