Traffic Investigators impounded two cars.

It’s happened again. A pedestrian tried to cross Evergreen Way outside of a crosswalk, was struck and ended up in critical condition.

It occurred in the 8900 block of Evergreen Way around 10:00 PM Saturday night.

With three lanes southbound, a middle turn lane and three lanes northbound the only safe way to get across Evergreen Way is to use a lighted crosswalk.

Sadly that doesn’t appear to be the case here as a person made it across five of the seven lanes of Evergreen before being struck by at least one and possibly two cars. It was rainy and windy at the time.

The crash happened directly across from a senior living facility just south of Fred Meyer and a block north of a signal.

Northbound Evergreen Way was shut down at Holly for about an hour and a half while patrol officers and traffic detectives worked the scene. Southbound traffic was allowed through. Two vehicles were impounded for further investigation and both drivers were cooperating with officers.

No word if there was impairment by anyone involved.

Here are a couple of photos from the scene. Click photo to enlarge.
