Edmonds woman struck while riding bicycle on Interstate 5 Saturday
A 22-year-old Edmonds woman riding her bicycle on Interstate 5 remains at Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries after being struck by a car around 5 a.m. Saturday morning.
Daina Elena Harrison was riding her bicycle northbound in the far left lane on I-5 just south of the Ship Canal bridge when she was hit at 5:16 a.m. by a Seattle man driving Lincoln Town Car, Washington State Patrol Trooper Julie Startup said. While the investigation is ongoing, Startup said it’s unlikely that the driver of the Town Car — 60-year-old Larry Walker — didn’t see the bicyclist until it was too late to avoid a collision.
It’s unknown at this time why Harrison was bicycling on the freeway, Startup said, but it’s illegal for bicyclists to use Interstate 5 in King County.
