EDMONDS — A 1-year-old boy was taken to an Edmonds hospital after he was bitten by the family’s dog on Wednesday, police said.
The boy suffered minor puncture wounds to his face but is expected to make a full recovery, Edmonds police Sgt. Don Anderson said.
The boy was at his aunt’s house on 203rd Street SW. She has a 10-year-old springer spaniel that isn’t used to small children, Anderson said. The boy tugged on the dog’s ear and the dog bit the child.
Paramedics took the boy to Stevens Hospital.
The dog must be quarantined for 10 days in a kennel at the woman’s house, Anderson said.
Police have no reports of the dog biting anyone else, he said.
Everett: Transit will consider route changes
Community Transit will consider changes to its routes at a meeting today.
The board of directors will meet at 3 p.m. in the board room of the agency’s headquarters, 7100 Hardeson Road, Everett. Everett Transit’s Route 8 serves the meeting location.
The key feature of the September 2008 service change proposal will be the start of service every 15 minutes between south Snohomish County and Everett. Routes 200, 201 and 202 will be adjusted, and service will be added between the Lynnwood Transit Center and Everett Station. The proposed change would mean there will be service every 15 minutes between Smokey Point and the Lynnwood Transit Center.
Pedestrian bridge over I-5 is now open for use
An overpass over I-5 near 128th Street SE opened this week for walkers and hikers.
The state project sat idle for two years until land could be bought to connect the span to the Interurban Trail. Now, trail users can steer clear of the heavy traffic — about 60,000 cars a day — at the freeway interchange.
Snohomish: Truck hits building, three injured
Three people were injured after a truck crashed into a printing business early Wednesday in Snohomish.
The accident happened just after 2 a.m. in the 800 block of Second Street. The driver suffered cuts to the face, Snohomish Police Chief John Turner said.
The driver is under investigation for drunken driving, Turner said. Police believe the Snohomish men, all in their early 20s, had been drinking at a downtown bar before the accident.
Authorities plan to investigate the bar’s staff to determine if anyone violated the law by continuing to serve the men alcohol, Turner said.
Man injured in fight; suspect arrested
Snohomish County sheriff’s major crimes detectives are investigating the assault of a man outside a duplex just west of Snohomish.
Sheriff’s deputies were summoned about 3 a.m. Wednesday to a report of a man down in the road in the 8100 block of 85th Avenue SE.
The Marysville man, 50, and a Snohomish man, 24, reportedly got into an argument in the street. The argument turned into a physical fight and the older man suffered a serious head injury, sheriff’s spokeswoman Rebecca Hover said.
His injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening, Hover said.
She didn’t know what the men were fighting about.
The Snohomish man was arrested for investigation of second-degree assault.
Deputies closed 85th Avenue SE for several hours while they investigated.
