Car/Pedestrian Collision on Greenwood Avenue

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.
