The fatal hit and run victim who died early New Year’s Day near North Bend has been identified by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office as 57-year-old Lucinda Fisher, although no town was listed.

Police are still looking for the vehicle which struck Fisher and then drove off, according to a King County Sheriff’s Office press release.

Detectives said the headlight found at the scene belongs to a 1987-1991 Ford Bronco or Ford F150 pickup. Detectives also said the vehicle will have right front damage and not the left front as originally reported.  The right headlight and turn signal light were broken off of the suspect vehicle and scattered at the scene, according to the press release.

The incident occurred about 3 a.m. when a group was driving just east of the Snoqualmie Casino after a night out.  An argument ensued and the driver and a woman passenger got out of the car and walked in different directions on 394th Place Southeast,  north of North Bend Way, according to the press release.

The driver eventually walked back to the car and the group drove around looking for the woman.  A short time later they found the woman in a ditch near the 10200 block of 394th Place Southeast. She had been struck and killed by a vehicle, according to the press release.

If you have information about the suspect vehicle or this crime please call the King County Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-3311. You can also call Crime Stoppers and earn up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in this case.  You may remain anonymous.
