KENNEWICK, WA - Kennewick Police are looking for a suspect at the center of a hit and run Wednesday evening.

Police say 18-year-old Daniel Reyes and 44-year-old Floriza Vejar were walking across 10th Avenue at Washington Street around 6:40pm in the crosswalk when an unknown vehicle heading southbound on Washington turned east onto 10th Avenue and hit both Reyes and Vejar.

After the accident, the vehicle left the scene, leaving the victims in the street.

When Vejar was hit, she was carrying a small dog. Luckily, the dog was not injured and a good Samaritan was able to catch the dog and hold it until Vejar got ahold of a friend to pick the dog up.

Reyes and Vejar were taken to Trios Health, where they were treated and released.

The Kennewick Police Department is working on several leads to identify the driver of the suspect vehicle. If you have any tips, please contact KPD.
