Man killed after falling from sunroof of car on interstate; driver missing
KIRKLAND, Wash. (KOMO) - A man is dead after falling from the sunroof of a car that was heading erratically down Interstate 405 early Monday - and now the driver of the car is missing, the Washington State Patrol reports.
The bizarre incident unfolded at about 3 a.m. when witnesses called 911 to report that a blue BMW was all over the freeway as it headed down the southbound lanes of I-405 - with a man riding in the sunroof.
The man fell from the car near the 85th Street interchange, but the car kept going. The man who fell died at the scene.
The BMW was later found abandoned at a Kirkland apartment complex - but the driver was nowhere to be found.
Police and troopers are now trying to track down the driver, who is suspected of hit-and-run.
