Man Injured after Being Struck by Alleged DUI Driver in Seattle on Jackson Street

SEATTLE, WA (January 30, 2019) – A man riding an electric scooter was injured after he was struck by an impaired driver on Thursday, January 24..

The 32-year-old man was riding a stand-on electric scooter in the 900 block of South Jackson Street near 5 Freeway at around 7:30 p.m. A Chevy Impala, driven by a 50-year-old woman, struck him.

According to a Seattle Police blotter post, the woman left the scene of the accident at first. However, a few minutes later, the woman drove back to speak with the authorities.

When buzzed or drunk, it is best to request an Uber, Lyft, or a taxi. If possible, reach out to a family member or a friend to come and pick you up.
