Woman hit by SUV in Covington parking lot stable at Harborview

A woman who was in serious condition last night after an SUV struck her and her boyfriend in a crowded Covington parking lot is now in stable condition, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

A 71-year-old man hit the couple in a Walmart parking lot at about 8:40 p.m., said spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West. The 45-year-old woman, who was initially stuck under the car, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center. Her boyfriend, a man in his 40s, suffered a head injury but was transported to Harborview in fair condition.

Deputies arrested the SUV driver on suspicion of vehicular assault and ordered him to take a mandatory blood draw at a nearby hospital, West said. He has been released to his family while the Sheriff’s Office awaits results of the toxicology test, which could take a few weeks, she said.
