The odd criss-cross of the intersection of E Denny and E Olive Way was the site of a car vs. pedestrian incident Monday night as some of the heaviest rains in months fell in the area.
We’re still gathering information on the the incident but we know that Seattle Fire was called to the intersection around 7:15p after several 911 callers reported a car had hit a pedestrian at the location. We do not have information on the victim’s condition at this time. UPDATE: We’ve learned the victim is a 37-year-old male who was hit in what is described as a “glancing blow” from the side of the car by medics. The man was transported to Harborview, according to Seattle Fire radio.
Seattle Police responded to the scene and are investigating the collision.
The incident comes in the midst of one of the busiest periods for 911 callouts around the city we’ve seen in a long time as rain-slicked roads have cars slipping and sliding and visibility is reduced. Add the earlier onset of darkness and you have the recipe for some dangerous streets. Take your time, pay attention and watch yourself.
