Road Rage Leads To Driver Being Struck By A Vehicle
King County: At approximately 4:30 p.m. on November 19, 2021, Washington State Patrol (WSP) communications received a 9-1-1 call reporting that a pedestrian was struck on the ramp from SB I-405 to 112th Ave and the vehicle involved fled the scene.
Troopers and Bellevue Fire Department arrived and found a pedestrian unconscious who was subsequently transported to Harborview Medical Center.
Further investigation revealed that this started as a road rage incident on SB I-405 north of 112th between a white work truck and a red Lexus IS. The two vehicles stopped at the beginning of the ramp to 112th at which time the driver of the truck exited their vehicle, opened the bed of the truck, and took out a four-foot level.
The driver then approached the red Lexus and struck the hood of the car. In the process of trying to get away, the red Lexus struck the other driver causing very serious injuries. The Lexus continued southbound on I-405.
Through further follow-up, detectives were able to locate and interview the driver of the Lexus. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
WSP detectives are seeking any witnesses to this incident along with anyone that may have dashcam video. Please contact Detective Russ Haake at Russ.Haake@wsp.wa.gov.
