SKYWAY, Wash. — Troopers with the Washington State Patrol are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who they say was killed as the result of a crash in Seattle’s Skyway neighborhood earlier this month.

Troopers provided a sketch of the man that we’ve posted above.

The man was hit around 7:30 a.m. on March 9 on SR 900 at 64th Avenue South, and died of his injuries on Sunday at Harborview Medical Center.

Troopers said they typically notify the next-of-kin of any person who was killed before releasing information to the public.

“Unfortunately, in this case, our efforts to identify the victim have been unsuccessful, and we are seeking the assistance of the public,” a WSP spokesperson wrote in a news release.

Troopers said the man did not have a cellphone, wallet or any other identifying belongs on him. Officials said he was wearing a sweatshirt that said “Colorado” on the chest and did not have tattoos.

Under his sweatshirt, troopers said he was wearing a black mechanic-style jacket with brown Dickies pants.

“He had two bus transfer tickets in his pockets and may have ridden the 101 or 102 line from Seattle to the area of the collision but it is unknown when,” officials said.

Anyone with information on the man’s identity is asked to call Detective Sgt. Moate at 425-401-7745 or email Stacy.Moate@wsp.wa.gov.
