Auburn Police seek public’s help to find hit-and-run driver who injured Auburn woman

For more than 50 days, Connie Braswell, 53, has fought to recover from injuries inflicted on her by a hit-and-run driver on A Street Southeast, but remains today at Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.

Now Auburn Police are pleading for the public’s help to find the hit-and-run driver who put the Auburn woman there Feb. 7.

According to police, an older white or light-colored sedan was southbound in the 1000 block A Street Southeast at about 8:07 p.m. Feb. 7 when the driver hit Braswell, and then sped on without stopping.

Given scant evidence and no suspect as yet, police are pinning their hopes on surveillance video captured from a nearby business.

The car probably has significant front-end damage, and it may have been a Toyota, police said.

A relative, a friend or a co-worker must know something about who was driving the car and where it is now, police said. Anyone with information about the hit-and-run should contact the Auburn Police Department’s tip line at 253-288-7403.
