Two sisters injured in Kirkland pedestrian accident

Seattle’s King5.com reports that two sisters — a 16-year-old girl and her toddler sister — were hit as they crossed in a crosswalk in the 12600 block of 100th Avenue NE in Kirkland.

According to the report, both sisters were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment of possible fractures and a head injury.

The pedestrian accident occurred as the girls crossed the crosswalk when one vehicle stopped for them but a second vehicle failed to stop and struck both girls.

Vehicle Code, RCW 46.61.235, states that whenever a vehicle is stopped to allow a pedestrian to cross the street, another vehicle approaching from the rear shall not pass the stopped vehicle.
