3 pedestrians injured in Seattle Pike Street Market car accident, driver faces charges

The Seattle Times reports that three people were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after an out-of-control Subaru hit them in a car accident near Pike Place Market on Thursday morning.

The three injured pedestrians are:

  • A 57-year-old man who was seriously injured when he was hit while crossing the street. The force of the impact threw him up on the hood of the Subaru.
  • A 54-year-old woman who suffered minor injuries
  • A 25-year-old woman who was seriously injured when she was pinned between the Subaru and a produce truck.

The driver of the Subaru did not appear to be hurt in the car accident but he is being evaluated for driving under the influence. He may be charged with Vehicular Assault. Washington State Vehicle Code RCW 46.61.522 states that a person can be charged with Vehicular Assault if a person is seriously injured in a car accident and the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving recklessly, or driving without regard to the safety of others.
