Detectives from the Traffic Collision Investigation Squad (TCIS) are currently investigating a car/pedestrian collision that occurred in the intersection of North 130th Street and Greenwood Avenue North shortly after 9:00 this morning.
At about 9:05 am , officers responded to a report of a child struck by a car at N. 130/Greenwood Avenue N. There had been a report just a minute prior to that of a recklessly driven vehicle southbound on Greenwood. Officers determined that the involved car in the collision was the same one.
The vehicle drove through the intersection, striking the 7-year-old girl and an adult female who were crossing in the crosswalk. The vehicle continued travelling southbound after striking the pedestrians.
Officers located the car in a parking lot just south of the collision scene. The elderly male driver was evaluated by Seattle Fire and transported to an area hospital for treatment. TCIS detectives and a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) officer responded to the scene. He was evaluated by the DRE officer for any signs of impairment from drugs and/or alcohol. The results of those tests are pending.
The child was transported to an area hospital with what is believed non-life-threatening injuries. The adult female was not injured. This remains an active and on-going investigation.
