The family of a teenager who was critically injured in a hit-and-run pedestrian crash in South Seattle is calling for the public’s help in identifying the driver responsible for leaving the boy with life-threatening injuries.
Police say that 15-year-old Trevon Crease-Holden and his younger brother were on their way home from Rainier Valley after playing basketball with friends on the night of July 19. As Trevon and his brother entered the crosswalk and began crossing the street, a speeding vehicle flew through the intersection and crashed into Trevon.
The boys’ mother, Quianna Holden, said, “When I got to the scene, I see my son in the middle of the street in a puddle of blood.”
Police Looking for Hit-and-Run Suspect
The accident reportedly occurred at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Way on the southside of the cross section with S. Walden Street. Since the accident, Trevon has spent the past several weeks at Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center to be treated for what officials say are life-threatening injuries. It is believed that he suffered a serious head injury in the crash.
The hit-and-run collision remains an open investigation, according to Seattle police officials. Police reportedly found the vehicle involved in the accident abandoned shortly after the accident occurred, but it was reported stolen and police have been unable to identify who the driver was at the time.
If you or someone you know may have information about the person responsible for this accident, please contact the Seattle police department at 206-684-2489. Quianna Holden will be leading a vigil walk for her son on the night of August 5 at the QFC shopping center on Rainier Avenue South.
