RENTON, Wash. (AP) — A woman was seriously injured by gunfire Sunday night while driving in Renton and crashed her vehicle, police said. The shooter, in another vehicle, drove off and remains at large.
The incident unfolded around 9:30 p.m. on Rainier Avenue South. Officers and medics responded to the scene after receiving 911 calls from passengers in the shooting victim’s vehicle, KOMO-TV reported.
She was found with serious injuries and rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. No other information was immediately available about the victim.

A description of the suspects and their vehicle is not immediately available.
