Bonney Lake, WA (May 26, 2021) - On Tuesday, May 25, a hit-and-run accident in the town of Bonney Lake left two people injured.
The incident occurred on WA-410 near the intersection with Myers Road E. at around 10:35 a.m. that morning. Emergency responders were called to the scene of a serious crash on the roadway. Officials located a severely damaged vehicle containing two occupants when they arrived.
The injured parties were both transported to a local hospital for treatment. Another vehicle was involved in the crash, but the driver fled the scene.
