According to a report on Seattle’s KOMO News.com, the 30-year-old woman was taken to St. Joseph Hospital for treatment of serious injuries including internal injuries and a hip.
The driver of the vehicle who hit the woman, was a 26-year-old Lynden man. The report said he was not injured.
Police believe that the woman may have been under the influence of alcohol. The Department of Transportation collects data on pedestrian accidents and fatalities and the data shows that 72% of all pedestrian fatalities in 2008 occurred on major roads including freeways and interstates. 53% of the pedestrians 16 and older who were killed at night time in 2008 had blood alcohol concentrations above the legal limit for drivers, 0.08%.
