A retired Sammamish woman reported to police that she was hit by a car at Trossachs Blvd and SE 9th Way on Nov. 27. The driver failed to stop at a stop sign and hit her at a low speed after she began crossing the road. She was hit hard enough that the impact caused her to land on the hood of the car, she said.
She said the driver, an Asian man in his 40s, stopped and asked her if she was ok. She said she was but she wanted to call police and have a report taken, and she asked him a number of times why he didn’t stop, as there are a lot of school children in the area at that time of day. At that, tehe driver got back into his car and drove away. She got the cars license plate number. She told police she is ok, but was disturbed by his behavior.
The man called police the next morning and asked police if this was about the “rolling stop” issue. He said he didn’t come to a full stop, but described it as a rolling stop. He said his windows were a little foggy and he guessed he didn’t see her. He said he wasn't sure if she placed her hands to balance herself on the hood of the car or fell onto it, but that there was no damage to his car to indicate she fell on the hood. He said the women was becoming very vocal and using expletives, then walked off telling him she had his license number. He agreed with the officer that it would have been better for him to wait for the police to arrive to investigate. Police planned to issue him a citation.
