Police Investigating Elliott Avenue Bike/Vehicle Collision

Detectives from the Traffic Collision Investigation Squad (TCIS) are conducting an investigation following a collision between a Chevy Blazer and a bicyclist last night in the 1400 block of Elliott Avenue West.

At 5:30 pm Monday evening, a cyclist travelling southbound in the 1400 block of Elliott Avenue collided with a northbound Chevy Blazer, driven by an adult male.

The cyclist sustained life-threatening injuries in the crash and was transported to Harborview Medical Center by Seattle Fire medics.

TCIS detectives responded to the scene to investigate.  A DUI/Drug Recognition Expert officer evaluated the driver of the Blazer for any signs of impairment and determined the driver was not impaired.

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
