Woman dies in hit and run; driver at large

A 75-year-old man was arrested on Friday Nov. 13 in connection with the fatal hit and run in Squamish.

The man, identified as Magne Staner Svarthumle, turned himself into the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office in Port Orchard on Nov. 13 after Kitsap County Superior Court placed a $100,000 warrant for his arrest.

Svarhumle reportedly didn’t have his glasses on while driving his late 90’s maroon Mazda pick-up truck, when he struck and killed 43-year-old Tricia L. Garduno.

Investigators located the vehicle, but not Svarhumle just hours after the incident, which shut down traffic.

Investigators made contact with a friend of Svarhumle who stated that Svarhumle had said he had struck a pole.

KCSO said on their Facebook page that they are grateful for the community’s help in solving this case and that while Svarhumle is in custody the investigation into the incident continues.

“Even though the suspect is in custody, KCSO traffic deputies will continue with the investigation. We at KCSO are grateful for the relationship with our community that provided tips that led to a quick resolution of locating the involved vehicle and identifying a suspect in connection with the tragic fatality hit-n-run collision Tuesday in Suquamish,” reads the KCSO Facebook post.

Anyone who has any further information regarding this incident is asked to call KCSO traffic deputies Dave Green or Steve Martin at 360-337-4634 or 9-1-1.
