A fire official on Bainbridge Island said a woman walking with her two grandchildren in a condo parking lot Friday suffered life-threatening injuries when she was hit by a car backing out of a carport.
KING-TV reported that Assistant Fire Chief Luke Carpenter said the driver didn’t see the woman or the children. He struck the woman, pinning her under the car, and also hit her 3-year-old grandson. The granddaughter was not hurt.
A nearby construction crew helped fire and rescue teams lift the car off the 71-year-old woman. She was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The boy was taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
The State Patrol said the driver was 91.
