A man fled from the scene of a single-car accident involving him near State Route 8 WB and Shaker Church Road around 9:00 last night, according to scanner traffic.
The Washington State Patrol and the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office responded to assist with a suspect search, which included shutting down Highway 101 and Highway 8 at times in order for the K9 to search along and cross the roadway.
The search continued near Old Highway 410 and Old Olympic Highway.
At this time, it is unclear if the suspect was caught. One lane of Hwy 8 Westbound was closed for approximately an hour.
