Friends and family said the woman hurt in a hit-and-run accident Saturday in Sumner was pronounced brain-dead and that her organs will be donated, KIRO-TV reported.
The 23-year-old woman was crossing East Valley Highway just before 11 p.m. in Sumner in the 2700 block, when police said a vehicle hit her and kept going. The woman was an elementary para-educator in special education at Muckleshoot Tribal School, a coworker said.
She coached soccer and basketball there, and would meet students to shoot hoops at the Muckleshoot Health and Wellness Center after school.
Investigators ask anyone with information about the vehicle, described as a dark SUV or sports car with likely damage to its front end and windshield, to call 253-299-5678.
