Kent man dies after collision with vehicle while lying in the street

Incident at about 4:06 a.m. Tuesday, April 16 at 132nd Avenue SE and SE 278th Street

A 63-year-old Kent man died after a collision with a vehicle at about 4:06 a.m. Tuesday, April 16 at 132nd Avenue SE and SE 278th Street.

A 58-year-old Kent woman told officers she saw the man lying in the street just moments before the impact but was unable to stop in time, according to an April 16 Kent Police news release. She remained on the scene and cooperated with officers.

The woman called 911 to report she had struck someone in the road and that the person was still on the ground. Officers arrived quickly and located the man, but he had already died from his injuries, according to police.

The Kent Police Traffic Unit was called out to conduct the investigation. Initial indications are that intoxication was not a factor in the incident, according to police.

Police are asking for any witnesses to the crash or anyone with information about the incident to email KPDTipLine@kentwa.gov, call the tip line at 253-856-5808 or call the nonemergency dispatch line at 253-852-2121. Refer to case number 24-5292.
