A 64-year-old man was sent to the hospital after a hit-and-run car crash Friday night on East Trent Avenue and North Fancher Road.

The man was riding as a passenger in a 2001 Ford Explorer at about 9 p.m. as the vehicle was traveling east on Trent. A 2008 Chevrolet Aveo was traveling west on Trent and turned, failing to yield and striking the Ford, according to a Washington State Patrol news release.

The driver of the Chevrolet fled the scene, and troopers found the car abandoned a block away, according to the release.

WSP has not identified a suspect.

The victim’s condition was listed as not serious by WSP. The driver of the Ford Explorer was injured but not sent to the hospital.
