The Associated Press
Police in Burien are trying to determine how a woman ended up seriously injured on a downtown street.
KING-TV says witnesses report they saw a gray van swerve and then saw the woman in the street Monday evening.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West says the woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Officers are trying to figure out if she was hit by a vehicle or suffered some health condition and fell in the street.
The owner of “A Place for Pets” pet store tells KING that the woman had just left his store after buying a couple of crickets. He says she is a regular customer who comes in every two weeks to buy crickets for a pet tarantula.
