EVERETT — A toddler suffered serious injuries Friday after being hit by a vehicle in south Everett.
A Toyota Sequoia struck a 2-year-old girl in a driveway around 4:40 p.m. in the 10700 block of 7th Avenue SE, Everett police officer Aaron Snell said.
The toddler was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett in critical condition.
The driver of the SUV, a neighbor in his mid-30s, remained at the scene. He told detectives he was turning a corner on the private driveway and did not see the girl, according to a statement from the Everett Police Department.
Police don’t believe alcohol or drugs were involved in the incident.
Officers stopped traffic in the area for about 30 minutes while Everett Fire responded.
Detectives with the police department’s Traffic Safety Unit are still investigating.
