A person crossing Union at 21st Ave was struck by a car on this rainy Sunday afternoon just before 1 PM. At this time, we have no information about the victim or the extent of injuries but can confirm that the injuries were first reported as serious and that the victim was transported to the hospital for treatment.
Union was closed for about 30 minutes while emergency crews and police responded to the scene. There were no radio calls made to ask for special units to test the driver for impairment. We’ll follow up with Seattle Fire to see if we can find out more about the victim’s condition.
