Robb Mason was leaving West Seattle on his way home from work when he was struck and killed by a person driving a limousine. The car then drove east.
SEATTLE — It has been nearly two weeks since 63-year-old Robb Mason was killed in a hit-and-run near the Spokane Bridge in Seattle. Police are still looking for the person who took off in a limousine and the victim’s wife is waiting for someone to be held accountable.
“To know that this person is still out there in the community is devastating,” said Robb Mason’s wife, Claudia Mason.
A ghost wheel now hangs over the intersection where the crime occurred at Southwest Spokane Street and Klickitat Avenue. Robb Mason was leaving West Seattle on his way home from work when he was struck and killed by a person driving a limousine. The car then drove east.
The Seattle Fire Department attempted to rescue Robb Mason, but they were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene. Seattle police said Wednesday afternoon there was no news on the case.
“Still in disbelief. My life as I knew it is over and I have to try to cobble something together,” said Claudia Mason.
Robb and Claudia Mason were married for over 18 years. He worked as a masseur. His wife said he loves fitness and said his smile is as contagious as his personality.
“He really was a loving man. He just loved life. He loved people. He loved me,” said Claudia Mason, “He was just an attractive personality and I will miss every bit of him.”
Claudia Mason is hoping someone will come forward with information to help authorities solve Robb Mason’s case. The Seattle Police Department encourages those with information to call the violent crime tip hotline at 206-233-5000.
“A lot can be forgiven when people take responsibility and accountability for their actions, but when they commit crimes and don’t even acknowledge them, that’s worse,” said Claudia Mason.
A vigil in honor of Robb Mason will begin at 7 p.m. Friday. The ride is organized by Seattle Critical Mass. People will gather at Westlake Park around 6:30 p.m. and drive to the crash site.
