Medical emergency crews and police responded to the intersection of 12th and Jackson just before 7 Monday night after a car struck two people causing serious injuries.
We don’t know the specific conditions of the two victims but we know that one female was found lying the eastbound lane of Jackson and another victim was found in the westbound lane. Traffic in the area was snarled during the medic response and investigation of the 6:45 PM incident.
According to police radio, responding officers did not determine that the driver was impaired by drugs or alcohol.
Both victims were transported to Harborview with serious injuries. We’ll update when we know more.
The incident is a reminder to be especially cautious on the streets as we transition into the dark winter months.
