Vehicle/Pedestrian Collision in South Seattle

On May 8th at approximately 11:05 a.m. officers responded to a vehicle/pedestrian collision with injuries.  Preliminary investigation indicates that a black Subaru Impreza was travelling southbound on Rainier Avenue South approaching South Dearborn Street.  At the same time, a male pedestrian was crossing Rainier Avenue South at South Dearborn Street in the north crosswalk, walking west to east when he was struck by the Subaru.

SFD medics responded and treated the 24-year-old male pedestrian at the scene.  He was then transported to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers evaluated the 18-year-old female driver of the Subaru for signs of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.  No signs were detected. 

There were no citations issued at the scene, which is standard procedure in serious traffic collisions requiring extensive follow up investigation and collision reconstruction.

Traffic Collision Investigation Squad detectives responded to the scene and continue to actively investigate.
