Accident Report: Burien Rear-End Collision

On August 30, 2006 JG was stopped at the intersection of 4th Avenue and 122nd in Burien, Washington, waiting for traffic to clear before executing a left turn. While watching for traffic, JG was unexpectedly struck from the rear. Following the collision, the unknown driver and his passengers fled the scene on foot, leaving their vehicle abandoned.
