Pedestrian struck, killed near 1st Avenue Bridge in Seattle

Two cars struck and killed a 79-year-old pedestrian walking along the right side of Highway 99, just south of First Avenue Bridge Monday night.

The first northbound vehicle, a 1985 Cadillac Seville, hit Jesse W. Jackson in the right lane at about 6:42 p.m. according to Washington State Patrol. Jackson landed in the HOV lane, where a second northbound vehicle, a 2007 Ford Expedition, struck him.

The man died at the scene of massive blunt force injuries, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.

No charges have been filed against the drivers, and no drugs or alcohol are suspected as being involved in the accident, according to WSP. Detectives are still investigating.
