Two nights, two car vs. bike incidents along Pike. A rider sustained serious injuries when the biker was struck by a rental car at the intersection of Pike and Broadway around 1:15 AM Saturday morning.
Police and three medic crews arrived at the scene, shutting down the busy intersection and drawing a big crowd, according to police radio. The rider was transported to Harborview with serious injuries after about 20 minutes and the intersection was re-opened. The driver was not screened for drugs or alcohol at the scene.
On Thursday night, a car is reported to have barreled through a group of bikers filling the street during a Christmas carol ride.
We do not have information yet on the bicyclist in Saturday morning’s incident or specific information on injuries.
Blustery, windy weather overnight was present on Capitol Hill and the rest of the region leaving thousands without power. No widespread outages were reported on Capitol Hill.
