Fatal truck found in New Year's hit-and-run

Police have located the vehicle, but not the driver, that was involved in the January 1 death of a North Bend woman.

The victim, identified by the King County Medical Examiner as 57-year-old Lucinda Fisher, was killed by an apparent hit-and-run around 3 a.m.

King County Sheriff spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West reported finding the vehicle at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 2, but said there was no suspect named as of press time. The white full-size pickup had some front-end damage and was missing a headlight. Damage was consistent with debris found at the site of the accident.

On New Year’s Day, Fisher and her companions were driving just east of the Snoqualmie Casino after a night out, when an argument began. Fisher and the male driver got out of the car and began walking in opposite directions on 394th Place Southeast, north of North Bend Way.

When the driver returned to the car, he began driving around, looking for Fisher.

Her body was found in a ditch near the 10200 block of 394th Place, apparently killed by a passing vehicle.

Deputies are still searching for the driver of the truck. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-3311.
