State troopers are looking for a driver involved in a hit-and-run crash Sunday night, which sent one man to the hospital.

The crash happened around 8:15 p.m. just south of downtown Seattle when two cars on southbound Interstate 5 entered Interstate 90. As they were entering, a pedestrian on the right shoulder tried to cross traffic to the left shoulder.

The pedestrian, a 32-year-old man, was hit by one of the cars and then was struck by the second car, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The first driver to hit the man fled the scene and continued southbound. The driver of the second car remained at the scene.

The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center. His condition is not known.

There is no description of the hit-and-run suspect or their vehicle.

The road at the crash scene was blocked for about three-and-a-half hours.
