Edmonds police were at the corner of 4th Avenue and Bell Street Tuesday night after a pedestrian was struck and killed by an SUV while crossing the street around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday night.
The pedestrian, a 73-year-old Edmonds woman, was crossing 4th Ave North, eastbound on Bell Street, when she was struck by a late model SUV driven by a 36-year-old Edmonds woman. The driver, who had been initiating a left turn onto 4th Ave North, stopped immediately and called 911, police said.
According to Assistant Police Chief Don Anderson, police “arrived on scene within two minutes of being dispatched but the female pedestrian was already deceased.”
“The 36-year-old driver is cooperating fully and there is no indication at this time that drugs and/or alcohol were a factor in this collision,” Anderson said.
A man named Joe, who didn’t want his last name used, said he was waiting up the street to meet someone when he heard “a thump and a skid.” He saw the victim in the street, and offered his shirt and towels from his truck to help, but she was unresponsive, he said.
