Troopers search for driver who crashed a box truck and ran

SPANAWAY, Wash. (AP) — Washington State Patrol troopers are looking for a driver who crashed a box truck along State Route 507 and then ran from the scene.

According to Trooper Johnna Batiste, the man was driving west on 8th Avenue South near Spanaway just after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday when he ran a stop sign and turned left to head south in the northbound lane of SR-507 when he struck a pickup truck head-on.

The driver of the box truck jumped out and ran off.

Troopers say the driver of the pickup truck was taken to Madigan Army Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The roadway was blocked for nearly three and a half hours.
