A Seattle man hit by a car in Lake City last week has since died at Harborview Medical Center, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
Jesse Gurnett was taken to Harborview Friday night and died from his injuries the following morning, according to spokeswoman Susan Gregg.
The 32-year-old was crossing Lake City Way at Northeast 127th Street around 9:15 p.m. Friday when a driver struck him, Seattle police spokesman Jonah Spangenthal-Lee said.
The 61-year-old driver left the scene but called 911 about an hour later to report the incident, Spangenthal-Lee said. Detectives didn’t find any signs that the driver was impaired, he said.
Police have impounded the driver’s vehicle and are still investigating.
