Tacoma Hit-and-run Driver Seriously Injures Camping Ban Protester

Tacoma, WA (January 26, 2022)- A hit-and-run driver left a woman in Tacoma with serious injuries after hitting her with his blue truck on East D Street on Wednesday night.

The woman was immediately rushed to the hospital.

The woman was part of a group staging a protest against a camping ban outside the LeMay car museum.

Witnesses said the driver fled the scene of the collision and believed the action was intentional.

“I don’t know if it was intentional on the driver’s part, but there is no doubt in my mind it was intentional to hit them and then drive off,” Stacey Soltoff, an eyewitness, said. “There are no skid marks; there were no brake lights. They were not swerving before or after they drove up onto the sidewalk and hit a pedestrian.”

The collision is still being investigated.
