NORTH BEND, Wash. -- Investigators have found a truck they believe was used in a fatal hit-and-run crash in North Bend.

A white Ford F-150 pickup truck that was missing its right-front headlight was located Wednesday in the North Bend area around 4:30 p.m., tweeted Sgt. Cindi West with the King County Sheriff's Office. West did not provide any further details on how the truck was found or where exactly it was located.

The driver remains on the loose.

Earlier in the day, West said investigators had recovered a right headlight and turn signal light that had been left behind at Tuesday's crash scene near 394 Place SE north of North Bend Way. Investigators were able to confirm the debris came from a late 1980s or early 1990s Ford Bronco or F150 truck.

The victim was a Snoqualmie Valley woman in her 50s, who had been in a car with a group of people who left the Snoqualmie Casino at about 3 a.m.

West said the group got into an argument and stopped near 394 Place SE north of North Bend Way, where the woman and the driver got out of the car and walked off in different directions.

The driver eventually went back to the car and the group drove around looking for the woman. Police found the woman's body a short time later in a ditch near in the 10200 block of 394 Place SE. She has not been identified.

Anyone with information is asked to call the King County Sheriff's Office at 206-296-3311.
