Po­lice still search­ing for hit-and-run driver

Tri-City Herald (Sunday) - - Local News - — CAMERON PROBERT

Po­lice have re­turned to the hunt for a hit-and-run driver af­ter learn­ing a sus­pi­cious pickup did not leave a 17-year-old Kennewick teen hos­pi­tal­ized in Septem­ber.

Of­fi­cers dis­cov­ered the pickup on the 7200 block of West Eighth Court about a week af­ter Kyle Mar­boe was hit out­side of his Belfair Street home.

The Wash­ing­ton State Pa­trol Crime Lab along with Kennewick po­lice de­tec­tives searched the truck for any con­nec­tion to the hit-and-run. When those re­sults came back re­cently, the ev­i­dence didn’t match what was found at the scene.

The Kami­akin stu­dent was play­ing bas­ket­ball on Sept. 5 when his mom heard a noise around 8 p.m. She found him in the drive­way, un­con­scious and strug­gling to breathe, Kennewick po­lice said.

He was rushed to Har­borview Med­i­cal Cen­ter, where he spent more than a month re­cov­er­ing from his in­juries. He has re­turned home, ac­cord­ing to a let­ter he wrote to his school news­pa­per.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are still ask­ing any­one with any in­for­ma­tion to call 509628-0333 or Tri-Cities Crime Stop­pers at 509586-8477. Crime Stop­pers of­fers up to a $1,000 re­ward for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to an ar­rest.
