The Washington State Patrol launched a Web site with the hope that it will help lead to the capture of those with felony warrants issued for their arrests. The Web site, (www.wsp.wa.gov/crime/wanted.htm) highlights those people still being sought for vehicular homicides, hit and runs, or vehicular assaults.
During 2003 State Patrol detectives investigated 178 felony collisions statewide.
"We are seeking help from the public to find these people who have fled police and have left numerous families with pain, loss and grief," explained Captain Brian Ursino of the WSP Criminal Investigation Division. "We want to call attention to this resource for the public's use and information. We want the families to know we have not forgotten the pain they are living and to know we are working tirelessly to bring these people to justice," he said.
