Tulalip man seriously injured when struck by car

A 35-year-old pedestrian was seriously injured on Tuesday when he was struck by a car in the 7000 block of 35th Avenue Northeast on the Tulalip Reservation, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said the family of the victim, who is believed to be a transient living on the reservation, told investigators he was near the road talking on his cellphone shortly before he was hit.

The driver of the car reported that he stopped and pulled over after something struck and shattered his windshield. When he got out, the driver saw the victim lying off the roadway, Ireton said.

According to the sheriff’s office, there were no witnesses to the incident, but criminal charges are not expected to be filed against the driver.
