Detectives with the King County Sheriff’s Office Major Accident Response and Reconstruction (MARR) unit seek the community’s help to identify any persons responsible for the July 18 fatal hit & run collision near the 23800 block of Southeast 216th Street, an area of unincorporated King County near Maple Valley.

King County deputies responded to this location at about 10:55 a.m. July 18 after a 53-year-old man was found deceased near the roadside. He was an avid runner and is believed to have been struck as he neared the end of a 15-mile Sunday run. A preliminary investigation indicates he was likely hit by a vehicle that fled the scene, leaving little evidence behind. This is a tragic case that cost a Maple Valley family their beloved husband, father and son.

Any persons with information in this case are asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency line at 206-296-3311 and reference case C21022337.
