SUNNYSIDE, Wash. — Law enforcement officers are looking for the driver of a black sedan who allegedly struck a Sunnyside High School student in the school’s parking lot and drove away without stopping on Wednesday morning.
KAPP-KVEW spoke with Cmdr. Scott Bailey of the Sunnyside Police Department, who confirmed that officers were dispatched to the parking lot around 8:15 a.m. on July 6, 2022 for reports of a hit-and-run. Upon arrival, they made contact with an injured student who was struck by a car outside of his school.
One of the injured student’s parents picked the victim up from the lot and drove him to a nearby hospital for an emergency evaluation and treatment. No further details regarding his condition or identity have been made public.
