Police and fire units were called to E Pine and 11th Tuesday night after a car struck a bicyclist near the bustling crossing to Cal Anderson Park. There are no official details yet on the collision but the Seattle Times brief on the incident describes the collision as a “severe impact.”
The bicyclist is a male in his 40s according to Seattle Fire radio. Dispatches described him as having “obvious head injuries” and behaving in a combative manner.
The stretch of Pine where the collision occurred is busy with foot, car and bike traffic. Last summer, we reported on this incident in which a car hit a pedestrian at 10th and Pine, a block to the west.
We will update with more details as they become available. If you saw the incident or have pictures, email or txt us at (206) 399-5959.
