Woman cyclist injured after being hit and dragged by a Seattle dump truck

2nd Seattle dump truck-bicycle accident in November

An unidentified 25-year-old woman has been injured in a Seattle bicycle accident when she was hit by a dump truck and dragged down the street.

The bicycle accident occurred at the intersection of Pike and Boren this morning just before 9am.

The injured woman has been taken to the Level I trauma center at Harborview Medical center.

This is the second bicycle accident involving a dump truck in Seattle this month. On November 13, a bicyclist was hit by a tandem dump truck at Howell and Yale.

According to the Seattle Bike Blog, this intersection was the scene of a bicycle accident fatality on May 29.

Earlier in November, an 88-year-old man died after being hit by a dump truck in Seattle.

The question that needs to be asked is, “Should double-trailers be banned from Seattle city streets?” It seems like these large trucks are not safe for bicycles and pedestrians.
