Bellevue police responded to a reported hit-and-run crash involving a pedestrian near the intersection with 148th Avenue Northeast and Northeast Eighth Street.

Officers arrived and contacted the driver of a 2016 Tesla SUV. The driver stated that she was driving westbound on Northeast Eighth Street at about 35 mph when a pedestrian ran into the driver’s side of her vehicle. There was significant damage to the side of the vehicle, including the mirror. After the crash, the pedestrian picked up his skateboard and ran northbound on 148th Avenue. The pedestrian was not located. The pedestrian is described as a white male juvenile, wearing a dark hoodie and a blue backpack, and carrying a skateboard.

The entire incident was captured by a city of Bellevue traffic camera. In the video, the pedestrian appears to get into a “three point stance” before running across the busy roadway against the light.

Bellevue police are asking for anyone that knows the identity of the pedestrian to contact them at 425-577-5656. Anytime an individual is involved in a collision that causes damage to a vehicle, they are required to stop and provide information to the other involved party. This includes pedestrians.
