Seattle pedestrian severely injured in crash with bicyclist

Seattle firefighters say a middle-aged pedestrian was taken to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening head injuries Friday morning, after he was struck by a bicyclist, at the corner of East Madison Street and McGilvra Boulevard East.

The collision, in a marked crosswalk, was reported to emergency dispatchers at 8:54 a.m.  Paramedics found the man conscious, bleeding and “agitated,” which is typical after head injuries, said Kyle Moore, fire department spokesman.

The cyclist, age 26, has scrapes and bruises. He was checked at Harborview as a precaution.  The pedestrian, a man in his 40s or early 50s, was still being treated by doctors mid-afternoon, Moore said.

This post will be updated, as details become available.
