86-year-old woman hit by light rail in South Seattle

An 86-year-old woman who incorrectly thought she could beat the train across the tracks was unconscious and unresponsive after she was struck by a Sound Transit light rail train just before 2 p.m. on Friday, according to police and fire.

The woman suffered critical injuries, but was still breathing when she was taken by fire and medic personnel to Harborview Medical Center for treatment, according Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore.

Seattle police are investigating the incident which occurred on the tracks at Martin Luther King Jr. Way and South Graham Street.

Police spokeswoman Renee Witt said the woman was on foot and thought she could make it across the tracks before the train got to the intersection.
