Pedestrian struck by ambulance

A pedestrian sustained serious head injuries after being struck by an ambulance.

On March 15, 2014, just shortly before 9:00 p.m., a SUV stopped for a pedestrian that was crossing the roadway in the midblock of the 1900 block of Boren. As the pedestrian crossed onto the S/B lanes, an AMR Ambulance side mirror struck the pedestrian’s head.

Seattle Fire Medics transported the pedestrian to Harborview Medical Center with serious head injuries.

As is protocol, a Drug Recognition Expert Officer evaluated the adult driver and determined that she was not impaired. She was released at the scene pending further investigation.

The investigation continues.
