Seattle Police say the white Ford Crown Victoria was spotted at S. Willow Street and 56th Avenue S. near Martha Washington Park. Firefighters put the fire out, and the car was handed over to the Washington State Patrol.
Troopers say Christopher Stanley, 39, from Tacoma was hit and killed on the southbound State Route 167 to Westbound State Route 18 interchange Sunday morning. He was walking on the shoulder with a friend on his way to get gas when the car hit him.
The car was described as a white 2006 Ford Crown Victoria. Troopers said the car would have a missing front bumper, a broken windshield, and a missing driver’s side mirror. Police did not immediately say if the car that was found on fire had this damage.
