TACOMA, Wash. — Police are searching for a driver who struck and seriously injured a woman Wednesday night in Tacoma.
A KIRO 7 photographer was at the scene, located on East D Street, and witnessed the driver of a blue truck flee the scene of the collision.
The woman injured in the collision was part of a group protesting a camping ban outside the LeMay car museum.
The victim was taken to the hospital.
Other protesters at the scene told KIRO 7 they believe the hit-and-run might have been intentional.
“I don’t know if it was intentional on the driver’s part, but there is no doubt in my mind it was intentional to hit them and then drive off. There are no skid marks, there were no brake lights. They were not swerving before or after they drove up onto the sidewalk and hit a pedestrian,” said Stacey Soltoff, who witnessed the incident.
Police are at the scene investigating.
