A 29 year old man was hit by a car at about 10:10 pm after getting off a Metro bus and trying to cross 9th Avenue SW at an unmarked intersection near SW Elmgrove Street in the Highland Park area of Seattle.  He was critically injured and taken to Harborview Medical Center with life threatening injuries.

The 51 year old driver of the Chrysler Lebaron that struck the pedestrian was traveling north on 9th Avenue SW.  According to the police, the driver showed signs of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  He was also taken to Harborview for a blood draw for further investigation of DUI.

This is case where liability will be disputed by the car driver's insurance since the pedestrian was walking in an unmarked crosswalk at night.  However, the car driver was most likely driving under the influence impairing his vision, reaction time, and ability to drive.  It's important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney to investigate the facts of the car accident as soon as possible.

At the Andrew Kim Law Firm, we provide prompt responses and investigate the scene of the accident to preserve critical evidence that may disappear later.  Call us at (425) 289-1990 in Seattle or Bellevue, or toll free at 1-800-636-3676 for an immediate consultation.
