    1. Hear hear! That’s a crazy intersection. It’s right at the plaza with a supermarket, and there is nothing: no light, no crosswalk stripes, nothing.

      1. Public Works trucks just arrived at the intersection and put up utility work signs. Will be interested to see what they’re going to do.

    2. I doubt an improved crossing at 234th would have made a difference; the guy was closer to 238th which is already a lighted and controlled intersection.

  1. Sad update — KOMO News reported he was taken to Harborview but later died. No other information was immediately released about him.

    1. Please don’t make policy decisions based on breaking news releases/reports from an investigation that isn’t final. You’d probably say the incident happened at about 9pm, because you read that too. Similar to the fatality wreck on 76th near 196th a couple months ago, the initial news reports of that crash were not quite accurate. Investigators rely on witness testimony, not what you read or hear in the media. Not fake news, just good police work.

  2. We need to fix Hwy 99 so people can know where and when to cross the Highway. No more running
    across the 99 in the pitch dark. We need lights, clear signals to everyone, all of which keeps folks safe and sound.
