Thanks to this driver’s rear dashcam video, police were able to locate this hit-and-run driver within hours.

Presumed Seattleite and Redditor /u/bwolf457 uploaded head-shaking rear dashcam footage from Interstate 5 from earlier last week (July 3, 2024) showing the unbelievable moment his wife got hit by a hit-and-run driver twice before, as the offense hints at, driving away.

Thankfully, police were on their toes, and, thanks to another accident an hour later (which we’ll get into) and this dashcam owner’s footage, they were able to locate the offender within hours.

Check out the dashcam footage below.

Wife gets a double tap hit and run [OC]

As mentioned, the incident took place on I-5 in Seattle, WA (Exact location on Google Maps linked here.)

As the video shows, OP’s wife is driving through stop-and-go I-5 traffic when, all of a sudden, a driver in what looks like a lowered Chevrolet Suburban drives into the back of her vehicle not once, but twice in succession.

His Washington plates read CKS2663.

The driver in the Suburban stops, but, instead of following OP’s wife to the nearest exit or pulling off to the shoulder, the driver jets it out of there and runs.

“Oh yeah, we got a fabulous, clear shot of his plates,” OP clarifies to another Redditor.

This hit-and-run driver’s run was short-lived as confirmed by OP, police picked him up shortly after.

“Police picked him up about 4 hours after this incident. He was connected to a second hit-and-run up the highway about 30 minutes after this one. The dude just couldn’t stay away from hitting cars that day I guess.”

As to why this guy was driving around hitting cars on I-5, your guess is as good as mine.

In my experience blogging about weird, one-off collisions like this, more often than not the driver was probably under the influence of something (alcohol or another substance.)

“Slow reaction time by that other driver, gotta be drunk or on drugs. One of those two, because they probably ran since they realized they’d be getting an additional charge on it,” /u/StackThePads33 commented.

Funny, wonder why they had a headlight out in the first place ????,” /u/Exkelsier humorously pointed out.

It seems like OP’s wife did everything right reacting to this hit-and-runner, instead of pursuing the driver, it’s best to collect as much info as possible and call 9-1-1 instead.

It sure helped she had a dashcam running, too.
