Friends and family of David Daley are rallying around the stylist after he was struck by a car while crossing the street at E Pine and 12th Ave just after midnight Sunday morning.
A donation site has been set up to raise money to help support the 33-year-old who suffered “a shattered elbow that will require surgery to reconstruct, a fractured vertebrae in his neck, bleeding in the brain, and other various cuts, gashes, and bruises” in the collision.
According to emergency radio dispatches, Daley was reported down at 12:17 AM Sunday morning when a clerk at the nearby East Precinct headquarters saw a commotion in the street. The clerk reported that a man had been struck by a “Smart Car” and required immediate medical attention. UPDATE: According to preliminary information provided to Seattle Fire, Daley was hit by a Car2Go vehicle and thrown 12 to 15 feet after being struck in the crosswalk.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing. We’ll check with SPD to see what else we can learn.
