Toddler struck by van in South Seattle

An 18-month-old child was hospitalized in South Seattle last night after being struck by a van.

Seattle police say that a woman behind the wheel of a Dodge van was backing out of an apartment complex driveway in the 7500 block of 43rd Avenue South at 6:30 p.m. when she struck the toddler. The toddler had apparently run from behind a parked car into the van’s path, police said.

The child was taken to Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries.

Seattle police say that the driver was not intoxicated. The case remains under investigation.
