The Washington State Patrol are looking for a 1995 GMC Astro van because they believe it was driven by the person responsible in the hit-and-run pedestrian accident that killed Heather Trickler near Everett in May. The Patrol is asking anyone with knowledge of the van to call them at 360-658-2588.
According to a report in The Seattle Times, General Motors assisted the Patrol in identifying the vehicle that struck and killed Heather. General Motors studied photos of the accident scene and were able to identify the vehicle. Investigators say the van had a broken headlight, and was missing the antenna and the passenger side mirror after the accident.
Heather Trickler was 15 years old when she was struck while walking east on the shoulder of Highway 2 near Homes Acres Road around 10:15pm on May 30. Whoever hit her, left the accident scene and her body was not discovered until the following day.
