Man, teen and 2 children hit by car on Everett sidewalk

A man, a teen and two children were struck by a car that drove onto a sidewalk Tuesday afternoon in Everett, but all are expected to survive.

The group — a Minnesota man in town visiting his 16-year-old son, 8-year-old niece and 2-year-old nephew — were on a sidewalk on Broadway when they were hit from behind a little before 4:30 p.m., according to Everett Police Department Officer Aaron Snell.

One of the older victims appeared to have suffered two broken legs, the other a possible broken ankle. The two children have nonspecific but non life-threatening injuries; the 2-year-old was in a stroller at the time.

The driver, a 31-year-old woman, was not injured. She was taken into custody after being checked for possible injuries at the hospital, he said. Snell said officers suspect she was under the influence of alcohol.
