An adult male was injured in a vehicle/pedestrian collision at North 115th Street and Aurora Avenue North today. At approximately 2:06 p.m. officers responded to the report of a vehicle/pedestrian collision with injuries. Preliminary investigation indicates that a 49 year old male was driving his white 1989 Plymouth Voyager northbound on Aurora Avenue North. At the same time a male pedestrian was crossing Aurora Avenue North from east to west at North 115th Street. The two collided at or near the intersection. The contributing factors leading to the collision are still under active investigation.
SFD medics responded to the scene and transported the pedestrian (a male in his 20′s) to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Plymouth was not injured.
Officers evaluated the driver for signs of being impaired. Upon completion of the evaluation the driver was released.
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.
