FROM 9:27 AM: Another followup to Tuesday night’s crash – this just in from the King County Sheriff’s Office:

The help of the public is needed to find the vehicle that struck and critically injured a pedestrian in a crosswalk two days ago.

The incident occurred about 5:20 PM on Tuesday, November 17th.

A 36 year-old White Center man was crossing 16th Ave SW in the crosswalk at SW 106th. The suspect vehicle was southbound on 16th Ave SW and struck the man. The vehicle slowed but did not stop and was last seen driving off southbound on 16th.

The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.

A driver’s side exterior mirror was found at the scene. There will also be damage to the left front fender.
