Woman in wheelchair taken to Harborview after being hit by car on Hwy 99 Tuesday afternoon

Updated at 4:09 p.m. with information from Edmonds police:

A 79-year-old Edmonds woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center Tuesday afternoon after the motorized wheelchair in which she was riding was struck by a car, driven by 20-year-old Lynnwood resident, at the intersection of 76th Avenue West and Highway 99 Tuesday afternoon.

According to Edmonds police spokesman Sgt. Mark Marsh, the woman was traveling south on the east side of Highway 99, crossing at 76th Avenue West, when the vehicle — headed northbound on 76th Avenue West — struck her at approximately 1:20 p.m.

The driver stopped immediately and waited with the pedestrian until aid and medic units arrived,” Marsh said. 

Edmonds Police arrived on scene, located directly next to the Ranch 99 Market shopping complex in Edmonds’ International District, and blocked 76th Avenue West along with part of Highway 99 to enable the medic crew to attend to the pedestrian and allow the Edmonds police traffic unit to investigate the collision.

The pedestrian was transported to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of unspecified injuries, Marsh said.

  1. How can I find out how she is, I’m a neighbor. Thank you.

    • I will ask police for an update but I probably won’t hear anything until tomorrow.

    • Here’s an update from Edmonds police: One of the traffic detectives spoke with the daughter of woman who was hit and said that she just had surgery on her legs and was still in the hospital. There is no other information regarding her condition.

  2. Over-passes needed for Highway 99……..there would be need based Federal Grant money well spent. I believe Shoreline has an over- pass at the highway…….Highway 99 has NEVER been pedestrian friendly……..it is what it is., a highway……statistics for the past 60 years easy to check……..

    I still see no crosswalk signs or markings where Ms. Bonano was hit……….I would think it wouldn’t.’t take the city more then a couple hours to remedy this…….it does appear to me that both city paths lead directly to the street where Ms. Bonano was hit. I can guarantee the residents of Edmonds would be more then glad to pay their taxes for these SAFETY items……it’s that simple FOUNDATION thing again…….common sense
