Police Officer Lexi Harris was struck and killed by a vehicle while checking on the welfare of several drivers who had just been involved in a vehicle crash on I-5 near Spokane Street.

Officer Harris had just completed her shift and was en route home when she encountered the crash at about 1:15 am. She had exited her vehicle to check on the drivers when she was struck by another passing vehicle. After being struck, one of the drivers from the original crash stole her POV and fled the area.

The driver who struck her remained at the scene and cooperated with investigating officers. The suspect who stole her vehicle was arrested four days later and charged with the investigation of felony hit-and-run, theft of a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property, possession of a stolen firearm, and identity theft.

Officer Harris had served with the Seattle Police Department for five years. She is survived by her parents, brother, fiancé, and her fiancé's two daughters.

I was assisting a local 5k in remembrance of of two local teens killed by a drunk driver 10 years ago. During the race I was approached by a sweet lady who thanked me for my service. I apologize for forgetting her name. She then informed me her niece had been killed in the line of duty. She showed me photos of you and expressed how proud she was of you, but also how dearly she missed you. Your memory lives on through the stories your friends and family share. Thank you for your service and sacrifice Ofc. Harris.
