Seattle pedestrian critically injured after becoming entangled in a rope towing a car

A 44-year-old pedestrian was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with “life-threatening” injuries after becoming entangled in a rope used to tow another car reports The Seattle Times. The man suffered critical head injuries in the accident.

According to The Times, the pedestrian accident occurred when a Toyota Camry was being towed by a GMC pickup truck using a nylon rope as a tow cable. The two vehicles were headed southeast on Renton Avenue South and the pickup truck turned right onto 62nd Avenue South but the Toyota did not make the turn. The pedestrian’s legs became entangled in the rope as he crossed 62nd street in an unmarked crosswalk and the man fell and hit his head.

Seattle police are investigating the pedestrian accident.
