Police seeking witnesses in hit-and-run that killed elderly Auburn woman Sunday night


Sunday night, Feb. 4, 2024 at about 8:15 p.m., Kent Patrol Officers and Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority Firefighters were dispatched to the 800 block of S. Central Ave (map below) in response to several 911 calls reporting a fatal accident.

Callers stated that a woman was lying in the street after being struck by a vehicle, and appeared to be deceased.


Officers quickly arrived along with fire personnel and determined that the victim, an 84-year-old Auburn woman, had tragically passed from her injuries.

At least one witness stated that they saw the woman walking in the northbound lanes of travel, not in a crosswalk, just prior to the accident.

One witness saw a smaller red sedan hit the woman head on, then speed off without stopping. The witnesses were unable to see a license plate on the suspect car.

The victim’s identity has not yet been released.
