Two men were hospitalized with serious injuries this afternoon after being struck by a car in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood.
The Seattle Fire Department said the two victims, ages 39 and 62, were crossing at Fairview Avenue North and Denny Way when they were struck by a car. Both men hit the car’s windshield, according to the fire department.
They were said to be alert and conscious when they were taken to Harborview Medical Center.
The driver, who didn’t provide his name, said he was turning left onto Denny Way from Boren Avenue North when he hit the two people, though he said he thought he had hit only one person. He “just didn’t see them,” he said.
The driver said he has had his driver’s license for seven months.
