At 6:56 p.m. Feb. 17 near 1800 S.W. 356th St., police responded to a hit-and-run vehicle accident involving pedestrians.
An initial investigation showed a 59-year-old Federal Way resident was driving a Dodge Dakota truck eastbound on South 356th Street when the vehicle collided with two pedestrians. The pedestrians, a 16-year-old male Kent resident and a 20-year-old male Tacoma resident, were walking eastbound on Southwest 356th Street, when they began to run across the street in an attempt to reach a bus stop. They were struck by the truck.
