Man in critical condition after being struck by car Sunday

The accident happened on 145th Place Southeast.

A man sustained life-threatening injuries after he was struck by a car while crossing the road on Nov. 17.

The emergency call came in at 7:12 p.m. and the accident happened as the car was traveling northbound on 145th Place Southeast near Southeast 18th Street.

The 67-year-old male was visiting from India, said Meeghan Black, Bellevue Police Department spokesperson. He was transported to Harborview.

The driver, a 30-year-old man, told police he looked away briefly, and when he looked back up, the victim was in the crosswalk. He pulled over and called 911 immediately.

The driver is cooperating with an ongoing investigation. The victim remained in critical condition on Nov. 18, Black said.

So far in 2019, Black said, there have been two fatal collisions involving bicyclists, and one involving a pedestrian on foot.
