Update: Shorewood crash on 26th SW sends 1 to hospital

King County Sheriff’s Deputies say the black pickup in the photo hit a pedestrian crossing 26th SW south of 106th SW about 12:30 pm. We were at the site around 2 and the Major Accident Response investigators had just arrived – deputies told us that meant the road is not likely to reopen till early evening. (We will check back.) No word so far on the circumstances, nor on the condition of the pedestrian. This is a busy area for traffic, since 106th SW runs between White Center and the West Seattle neighborhood of Arbor Heights, and 26th SW runs north of the scene all the way to the Westwood Village shopping center. We have two reports, neither official (one is from someone saying he was a witness at the scene right after the crash), that the victim is a juvenile male, and we will be trying to find out more.

5:31 PM UPDATE: The road is open again; investigators have finished and departed.

6:40 PM UPDATE: King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. John Urquhart has sent a brief news release on the crash, but the only additional detail it contains is that the victim, described as “around 15 years old,” is in serious condition.
