Bicyclist hit on Shelton highway

UPDATE, 10:05 A.M.:  Steven Prime, the bicyclist hit by a pickup in Shelton, is in “serious and improving” condition at Harborview, a hospital spokeswoman said Monday morning.

ORIGINAL POST: A bicyclist from England was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center on Sunday afternoon with severe injuries, after being struck by a car on Highway 101.

The crash was reported at 3:12 p.m., in the northbound direction 1.5 miles north of Shelton, at Airview Way.  The driver of a northbound pickup truck swerved right, to avoid an unknown oncoming vehicle, and the pickup’s wheels left the travel lane, according to a memo by the Washington State Patrol.  The bicyclist, Steven Prime, 29, of Coventry, England, was airlifted, and the highway was closed for about 90 minutes. No decision has been made yet about any charges.
