Updated with additional details, clarification from Edmonds police
Edmonds police are investigating a vehicle-pedestrian collision Friday afternoon that injured a 15-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy who were struck while crossing the street at 220th Street Southwest and 80th Avenue West in Edmonds.
According to Edmonds police spokesperson Sgt. Josh McClure, the children were part of a family of four who was crossing in a marked crosswalk just after 3 p.m. Friday when the driver of the vehicle — a 61-year-old Mountlake Terrace woman headed easbound — failed to stop for them
The driver was cooperative and remained at the scene. No drug or alcohol involvement is suspected at this time, and it is unknown if speed or distractions were a factor, McClure said, adding that will be part of the overall investigation. Some video was captured and provided to the police, he said.
The victims were transported to Harborview Medical Center for evaluation and treatment. Both sustained injuries, but the teen has since been discharged, and the boy is currently in critical but stable condition in the ICU. An adult female and a child in a stroller were uninjured. First responders also navigated language barriers with all involved as they attempted to render aid and investigate what had occurred, McClure said.
Traffic investigators from the Edmonds Police Department and Snohomish County Sherriff’s Office also responded. The roadway was closed for approximately four hours during the investigation.
“While the initial available facts and circumstances did not support an immediate criminal investigation, any potential charges or traffic infractions would come from the information gained from the ongoing investigation,” McClure said. More information will be released as the investigation allows.Anyone with information about this incident can call the Edmonds Police Department or email firstname.lastname@example.org
