LYNNWOOD A 52-year-old Lynnwood woman was critically injured early Saturday after being struck by a car while trying to cross Highway 99.
The driver of the vehicle that struck the woman was then struck by a second vehicle while State Patrol troopers were investigating the accident.
The events took place near the intersection of Highway 99 and Lincoln Way in Lynnwood. At 12:54 a.m. Saturday, the Lynnwood woman tried to cross the highway and was hit by an oncoming 2000 Dodge Durango driven by a 45-year-old Everett man.
The woman was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where she remained in critical condition Saturday.
