Driver flees on foot after deadly crash in Bellevue

BELLEVUE, Wash. - Police are looking for a driver who fled on foot after a deadly crash Wednesday night in the Newport Hills area of Bellevue. The body of a 35-year-old Bellevue woman was found at the scene, but the driver of the vehicle had fled. Anyone with information about the crash is urged to contact the Bellevue Police Department.

Meanwhile, officers are continuing to look for the driver who fled.

Jackson has been charged with vehicular homicide and felony hit-and-run and is being held in jail on $2 million bail, prosecutors said.
