A man died after witnesses say he fell from the roof of a vehicle on Interstate 405 early Monday morning in Kirkland.

State troopers say a person fell off of this BMW and died while traveling on I-405 Monday morning.

The passenger was then ejected and killed.

The young man was standing up or hanging out of the car's sunroof when he fell, said Trooper Rick Johnson, citing witnesses.

The driver of the vehicle did not stop, according to Johnson, but someone who was inside the auto - either the driver or another passenger - called a short time later and told officers that he or she wished to speak to police. Troopers said the auto left the scene but was later found at an apartment complex in Kirkland.

Officers are searching for evidence in and outside of the vehicle and say hand prints were found on top of the BMW.

All lanes of southbound I-405 were blocked but have since reopened to traffic.

All lanes were back open shortly before 6 a.m.
