Federal Way major-accident detectives are investigating a hit-and-run that killed one woman and sent two others to the hospital Sunday evening.
The crash occurred at about 9 p.m. when a car traveling south on Pacific Highway South “at a high rate of speed” crashed into a vehicle that was turning left from northbound Pacific Highway South onto South 316th Street, Federal Way Police Department Cmdr. Kurt Schwan said in a statement released Monday.
The driver of the southbound vehicle fled on foot, leaving behind his injured female passenger, Schwan said. The driver of the other car was hurt and her passenger was killed, according to police.
Schwan said the department would not immediately release any further information.
Correction: Due to inaccurate information provided by police, an earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the driver of the vehicle that was struck had died. It was the passenger in that car who died.
