A hit-and-run rampage happened Monday night around 7:45pm in White Center when a van struck at least four different vehicles before fleeing to Burien.

The crime occurred at the intersection of 4th Ave SW and SW Roxbury before the driver drove off and later abandoned his van in Burien.

According to Sgt. John Urquhart of the King County Sheriff’s Department:

There was a H & R accident at 4th & Roxbury last night about 7:45 PM.

The driver of the other car was taken to Harborview with non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect vehicle took off striking a car, (causing considerable damage) at Olson & Myers Way, then continuing southbound.

My understanding is that other cars were hit as well as it drove on.

The suspect car finally pulled into a random driveway at SW 130th and 8th Ave South.

The driver and two passengers fled on foot and could not be located, even with a K-9 dog.

The suspect vehicle was a 2000 Toyota Siena.

The hit and run driver is still at large, and the reasoning for the crime is still undetermined.

    I’m getting really sick of the crime headlines that end up having a relation to Burien. I don’t know if there’s just tons of crime here or Burien gets the story and crimes go unreported elsewhere… maybe a little of both? These things end up online in searches where unreported crimes don’t really appear. You’d think I was living in a war zone or something…

    I’m pretty sick of reading about the crimes too… just because it’s sad all around. I will say that when I used to live in Ballard I’d read the MyBallard blog everyday and there were tons of crimes happening there too.

    For what it’s worth I feel no less safe here in Burien than I did in Ballard. I do think Burien and White Center get a really bad rap…
