Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office detectives investigating a car-vs.-pedestrian crash on 164th Street Southwest and 36th Avenue West Thursday morning believe that the pedestrian had crossed the street against the light.

The driver, a 48-year-old Edmonds man, entered the intersection with a green light at around 6 a.m. when the pedestrian stepped into the street, according to an update from Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Sheri Ireton. The pedestrian, a 26-year-old Lynnwood man, was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he remains in critical but stable condition.

The driver stayed on scene and cooperated with investigators, Ireton said, adding there was no sign of drugs or alcohol on the part of the driver, nor is speed believed to be a factor.
