Driver flees scene of crash (BCSO)

Late Monday evening Benton County Deputies assisted Washington State Patrol troopers investigating a crash near the intersection of SR 224 and Red Mtn. Road near Benton City.

Deputies did not say if multiple vehicles involved, but apparently the driver of this car was seen fleeing on foot. He was said to be 23 years old, heavyset and wearing shorts (in this weather?!?)

He was believed to have possibly fled into  the Red Mtn. neighborhood. The investigation continues.
