1 Hospitalized after Auburn Pedestrian Car Accident
AUBURN, WA (February 18, 2019) – A 15-year-old boy suffered injuries after being struck and injured by a car on Auburn Way.
The incident occurred at 6:46 p.m. when Isami Brandan and a friend were walking across the street in the 800 block of Auburn Way North.
Auburn Police revealed that a vehicle struck the teen and he was taken to a nearby hospital suffering from serious injuries. Reports also indicate that the car did not stop after the collision.
“The cop told me that the car ran a red light. The fact he like braked and then probably just looked around and then left, and he’s still not coming forward, that’s cowardly,” Heian Brandan, Isami’s sister, revealed.
“He has a laceration in his spleen. He has a really big concussion,” Brandan added.
The authorities believe that the involved car is a red Toyota Prius C. Videos were released from a traffic camera. Police added the vehicle would probably have damage to the driver’s windshield as well as its hood and headlight areas.
Anyone who has information on this collision is urged to contact 911 or the Auburn Police tip line at 253-288-7403.
