Man hit by car near Aurora Bridge has ‘life-threatening’ injuries

UPDATE 9:15 p.m.| A man was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries late Monday after a car struck him as he crossed the road just north of the Aurora Avenue Bridge, Seattle police reported.

The car struck the man shortly before 6 p.m., as he crossed the 4400 block of Aurora Avenue North from west to east in an area that’s not legal for pedestrian crossings, police said in a press release late Monday.

The man, described as in his 40s, sustained “life-threatening” injuries that police didn’t specify. Fire medics responded to the scene and took him to Harborview Medical Center.

Police late Monday were still interviewing the driver who struck the pedestrian. The motorist, also described as a man in his 40s, was driving a four-door Honda sedan north along Aurora when he struck the man. The driver wasn’t injured, police said.

Northbound Aurora Avenue leading to the bridge was shut down during the Monday evening rush.
