Washington State Patrol detectives are still trying to find the hit-and-run driver who killed a Renton woman last month at a crosswalk near Highway 167 and 84th Avenue South in Kent.
“We have no new leads on this,” said State Patrol spokesman Rick Johnson. “We still have no information about the vehicle that struck her. Potentially it could have been a commercial vehicle, but we don’t have that. No tips have come in.”
Long Duc Wells, 46, died at the scene of the early morning incident.
“Detectives believe she was standing waiting to cross the crosswalk where the ramp goes to southbound 167,” Johnson said.
Johnson said he might issue a media release at some point to get help from the public to find the driver if the detectives want to go that route for more information. He said initial requests for the public’s help did not lead to any tips.
The State Patrol handled the incident rather than the Kent Police because it occurred along a state highway.
