Posted on Apr 15, 2014

A 65-year-old Seattle pedestrian was seriously injured in an accident on Tuesday night, March 18, 2014. The accident happened in the 600 block of West Nickerson Street in the North Queen Anne section of Seattle.

Around 9 p.m., emergency officials were notified of the accident. Seattle police officers and medics responded to the accident scene shortly thereafter, where they found a 65-year-old man with injuries. According to the initial investigation of this Seattle pedestrian accident, the 65-year-old man was hit by a Pizza Hut delivery car. It has been reported that the pedestrian hit the windshield and the roof of the car. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries that are believed to be non-life threatening.

The driver of the Pizza Hut delivery car was not reported to be injured and nobody else was reported to be involved in this crash. The names of the pedestrian and the delivery car driver were not immediately released to the media.

In 2012, the most recent year for which complete statistics are available, there were 2,038 pedestrians involved in Washington State accidents that resulted in injury or death. Seventy-five of those pedestrians died, 337 of those pedestrians suffered serious injuries, and the rest of the pedestrians suffered minor injuries. The number of pedestrians who were hurt by delivery vehicles was not reported independently of the total number of pedestrians hurt and killed.

We extend our best wishes for a complete and quick recovery to the Seattle pedestrian who was injured in this crash.
