The Shelton Police Department is looking for witnesses and more information on a hit-and-run collision early Friday morning at the intersection of 7th and Railroad that left two people seriously injured.
According to a news release, at approximately 1 AM Friday, May 29, 2020, a vehicle traveling southbound on 7th Street towards the Railroad Avenue intersection turned left onto Railroad, directly in the path of a northbound motorcycle. The vehicle struck the motorcycle and left the scene, traveling east on Railroad towards downtown Shelton.
Shelton Police arrived on the scene and found two people lying next to the motorcycle with obvious injuries. Both were wearing helmets and were transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Investigators determined that the car is at fault as the motorcycle had the right of way.
The suspect vehicle was leaking fluid, and officers followed the fluid trail to the intersection of Railroad and 1st Street where the trail stopped. Officers were unable to locate the suspect vehicle. However, based on evidence at the scene, the suspect vehicle is believed to be a 2000-2005 Chevrolet Impala, possibly silver. The suspect vehicle should have damage to the passenger side.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Lawson at 360-432-5138 or the Shelton Police Department at 360-426-4441.
