EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - Washington had 22 hit-and-run fatalities without a suspect between 2008 and 2012, according to a state Traffic Safety Commission report.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1EfxMSb ) that in Snohomish County several hit-and-run fatality cases remain unsolved.

In Everett, collision investigation detectives are looking for a suspect in the February crash that killed 53-year-old James Mahood. Investigators are also unsure who was behind the wheel of the car that struck and killed 53-year-old Ferndale resident, Diana Martinka, a month earlier.

A 2009 high-profile hit-and-run case involving 15-year-old Heather Trickler, who was struck and killed while walking along the U.S. Highway 2, remains unsolved.

Sgt. Andy Kahler, of the sheriff’s office Collision Investigation Unit, says in all hit-and-run cases, the goal is to provide closure for the family and to hold whoever is responsible accountable.
