We’re still working on details of a reported collision between a pedestrian and a car at 18th and Yesler. Reader ryanmurphy reported the following:
word from a neighbor is it was Volvo vs. Ped and the Volvo driver was crying hysterically after it happened. Doesn’t look good.
We will update as we get more information.
