An elderly man has been transported to the hospital after being hit by a car in Bellevue.

At 10:44 p.m. on March a pedestrian was hit by a vehicle in the crosswalk on Northeast 13th and 156th Avenue Northeast near the Crossroads Mall.

The 87-year-old male victim sustained major injuries and was transported to the hospital. As of March 18, he remained at Harborview.

The victim was in the crosswalk travelling westbound on the north side of the intersection, and the driver was headed southbound turning left onto Northeast 13th.

The 31-year-old female driver is a resident of Kirkland.

“She remained on scene and cooperated fully with the investigation,” said Bellevue Police Department’s public information officer Meeghan Black.

According to Black, the driver had zero signs of impairment.

“Nobody actually saw, but they heard it,” said Black.

Collision investigators went out to the scene and reinacted the incident. The investigation remains ongoing.
