An 85-year-old Edmonds woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center Monday with serious injuries after she was struck by a car in the 800 block of Walnut in downtown Edmonds Monday afternoon, Edmonds police said.
Friends of the victim identified her as long-time Edmonds resident Ellie Bonanno. Edmonds police spokesman Sgt. Mark Marsh said that Bonanno walked in front of a vehicle that was headed east on Walnut Street around 5 p.m. The vehicle’s driver, described as a “70-plus-year-old local resident,” didn’t have time to stop or avoid hitting her, Marsh said.
“There is no suspicion of alcohol or drugs being a factor nor any other traffic violation,” Marsh added. “While the investigation is still ongoing charges are not expected at this time.”
