A 16-year-old female crossing 132nd Street SE in Mill Creek at about 8:30 pm on Friday night, September 8, 2017, was hit by two separate vehicles and sustained traumatic injuries. The roadway was closed in both directions while an investigation took place.
The young woman was attempting to cross the roadway where no crosswalk exists near the Thomas Lake Shopping Center in the middle of the 3300 block of 132nd Street SE. The roadway is dark in this location.
As she stood in the median, a truck headed in the eastbound direction was turning left and knocked her off the median into westbound traffic. She was then hit again by another vehicle, which was headed westbound.
Mill Creek Police and Snohomish Fire District 1 were dispatched to the scene. Due to her injuries, the young woman was transported in an ambulance to Harborview Medical Center.
The Mill Creek Police Traffic Safety Unit is investigating the incident.
Police reported that there is no indication of drugs or alcohol involved.
Drivers of both vehicles remained at the scene and are cooperating with police.
