Man lying in garage driveway hit by car Thursday night

A man was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after police say he was struck by a car in the South Lake Union neighborhood last night.

The man was lying in the driveway of a parking garage at Mercer Street and Yale Avenue North, said police spokesman Mark Jamieson. A woman driving a gray Subaru struck him, Jamieson said.

“The driver drove over a pedestrian who was laying in the driveway. The victim was taken to Harborview with life-threatening injuries,” Jamieson said.

Kyle Moore, Seattle Fire Department spokesman, said the man suffered critical head injuries. The man is in his 20s.

As a standard procedure, the driver was evaluated by a drug recognition expert after the 6:50 p.m. accident, Jamieson said. She was not found to be impaired.

It is unclear why the man was lying in the driveway.
