The Washington State Patrol is investigating an I-405 hit-and-run that left one woman with non-life-threatening internal injuries on Sunday.

State patrol officials say a dark colored, possibly dark green, smaller passenger vehicle left the scene at mile post 22 on I-405, near the exit to Northeast 160th Street in the Evergreen Hill neighborhood in Kirkland.

A woman was driving northbound I-405 when her Mercury Mountaineer was clipped by a speeding vehicle in a construction zone at about 12:03 a.m., according to Washington State Patrol Trooper Chris Webb.

The woman’s Mercury left the roadway and rolled over, stopping upside down.

“It was basically blocking the exit ramp,” Webb said.

The woman was taken to EvergreenHealth Medical Center.

Detectives and Troopers are seeking witnesses that may have seen the collision, the hit-and-run suspect’s vehicle or any event leading up to or following the accident.

Witnesses are encouraged to contact Detective Greg Wilcoxson at 425-401-7746 or Detective Russ Haake at 425-401-7717.
