Don Anderson, police and Snohomish County Fire District No. 1 responded to a report of a car/pedestrian collision on 3rd Ave South and James Street in downtown Edmonds Tuesday at 3:51pm. The victin was a male delivery truck driver in his 40s, who suffered “significant” injuries and was transported by medic crews to Harborview, Anderson said.
A portion of 3rd Avenue South between Dayton and Main Street was closed for a period of time while the police department’s major collision investigation unit conducted its investigation. It did not appear that speed, drugs or alcohol were factors in the collision, Anderson said.
