A 50-year-old Redmond man is facing hit-and-run charges after police say he struck a pedestrian in a crosswalk near Northeast 85th and 166th Avenue Northeast at about 8 p.m. Friday and fled the scene.
spokesman Jim Bove said a person who witnessed the incident followed the driver, who traveled less than 1/2 mile before officers caught up to him.
“He didn’t go very far,” Bove said.
The victim was not seriously hurt and declined medical attention, Bove said. Charges are pending against the driver.
