Pedestrian hit by truck

A woman crossing a major intersection on the island last Thursday night received non life-threatening injuries after being hit by a pick-up truck attempting to cross.

Ryan Abbott, a spokesman with the King County Sheriff’s Office, told The Beachcomber that at approximately 6:20 p.m. on Jan. 2, a Toyota Tacoma was headed north on Vashon Highway and was making a left-hand turn onto Bank Road Southwest when it collided with the female on the marked crosswalk.

The woman, Abbott reported, was conscious, sitting up and talking when Vashon Island Fire & Rescue arrived. She was taken by ambulance to Harborview Medical Center according to VIFR Chief Charlie Krimmert.

Abbott said he would not know if the driver was cited until the incident report is approved.
