Vehicle vs. pedestrian collision downtown

On March 20th at approximately 6:45 p.m. officers responded to a vehicle versus pedestrian collision near 7th Avenue and Denny Way. Preliminary investigation indicates that a pickup truck was attempting to make a right turn from northbound 7th Avenue onto eastbound Denny Way. The truck stopped for a pedestrian that was crossing Denny Way northbound with a steady walk signal. Another vehicle rear-ended the stopped pickup truck pushing the pickup truck forward and causing it to strike the pedestrian and another vehicle. SFD Medics responded to the scene. The pedestrian was transported to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Westbound Denny Way was closed for a short period of time while officers conducted their investigation.
