The Washington State Patrol is seeking help from the public in finding the driver of a white Toyota RAV4 who struck and killed Robert Windom, 54, of Burien early on Jan. 1st.

Windom was hit just before 3:30am on New Year’s Day on northbound I-5 near Boeing Field. The suspect driver fled, but a driver’s side rear-view mirror broke off, which has been matched to the RAV4, most likely made between 2005 and 2008.

It’s reported that Windom was a passenger in a car when he got out because he was feeling sick; he apparently wandered into the northbound lanes, where he was fatally struck by several vehicles.

So, if you know anyone driving a RAV4 or similar vehicle with damage to its left side, including the rear-view mirror and possibly headlight, fender, hood and windshield, please call WSP detectives at (425) 649-1530 immediately.
