Boy Hospitalized in Seattle DUI Accident

 
SEATTLE, WA (February 8, 2019) – A 14-year-old boy suffered serious injuries Monday when he was hit by a suspected DUI driver while sledding near 35th Avenue Southwest and Southwest 110th Street.
 
Authorities are furthering their investigation of this crash. The incident happened around 1 p.m. when the driver of a Ford Focus – a 20-year-old male – was approaching Southwest 110th Street on 35th Avenue Southwest. The motorist tried braking, but his vehicle slid on the icy roadways instead and struck the 14-year-old boy who was sledding down the hill seconds prior.
 
The boy was struck and immediately brought to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.
 
Per reports, the driver was evaluated at the scene and impaired at the time. He was subsequently arrested and booked into King County Jail on suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana.
 
Driving a car while under the influence of drugs or alcohol can bring about unfortunate consequences. Being impaired slows down our response rate, blurs our vision and distorts our judgment. If under the influence of either alcohol or drugs, call a sober friend to bring you home instead.
