SEATAC, WA (October 28, 2020) – Recently, a 74-year-old man suffered critical injuries after a police pursuit crash near 220th Street and Military Road.
 
According to Trooper Rick Johnson with WSP, a motorcycle officer pulled over a 32-year-old male driver. The officer stopped the driver after noticing that it traveled at least 95 mph on NB I-5, just south of SR 516.
 
As the officer pulled over the driver, the man gave him a couple of different names. Afterward, the driver fled the scene. Thus, the police began a brief chase when the driver slowed down and exited the freeway onto Military Road.
 
Then, the driver struck the 74-year-old pedestrian on a street near 220th Street and Military Road. The vehicle dragged the pedestrian onto a nearby yard.
 
When the responders arrived, they transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.
 
Furthermore, the authorities closed down area roads while police investigate.
 
Meanwhile, the officials revealed that the driver who also had a felony warrant out for his arrest was now in custody.
 

Dealing With Similar Incidents

 
In today’s current state of affairs, taking strolls outdoors is becoming the new normal. With this, the likelihood of accidents involving pedestrians increases.
 
Car accidents are far more common than pedestrian accidents. However, there is still reason to be wary when traveling on foot.
 
“Pedestrian accidents do not occur as much as motor vehicle accidents. However, the pedestrian accidents tend to include more serious injuries,” Tyler Toomey said. He is a practicing attorney at Sweet Lawyers.
 
“Some of the worst pedestrian incidents involve minors. It’s because they are sometimes hard to see. They also ride bikes, skateboards, etc. Pedestrian incidents usually occur in shopping center entrances and street corners,” he added.
