LYNNWOOD -- A Lynnwood man was arrested Monday in connection with last week's fatal hit-and-run collision on Highway 99.
Lynnwood police allege that the suspect, 29, sped away after striking a man who was crossing the highway.
The crash happened just after 10:30 p.m. Thursday, about a half-mile south of 164th Street SW.
The victim, Young Koo Kim, 62, was rushed to a Seattle hospital.
He died from blunt-force injuries, according to the King County Medical Examiner's Office.

The owner was arrested around noon Monday in Shoreline. He was expected to be booked into Snohomish County Jail for investigation of felony hit-and-run.
