September 12, 2018

SPANAWAY, Wash. (AP) — Washington State Patrol troopers are looking for a driver who crashed a box truck along State Route 507 and then ran from the scene.

KOMO-TV reports the man was driving west on 8th Avenue South near Spanaway just after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday when he ran a stop sign and turned left to head south in the northbound lane of SR-507 when he struck a pickup truck head-on.

The driver of the box truck jumped out and ran off.

Troopers say the driver of the pickup truck was taken to Madigan Army Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The roadway was blocked for nearly three and a half hours.
