Lynnwood boy in serious condition after struck by car

LYNNWOOD — A 7-year-old Lynnwood boy was listed in serious condition Wednesday at a Seattle hospital after being struck by a car as he walked to school, officials said.

The boy’s injuries do not appear to be life threatening, Snohomish County Fire District 1 spokeswoman Leslie Hynes said. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center.

The boy was walking with his two sisters to Beverly Elementary School about 8:20 a.m., Edmonds School District spokeswoman DJ Jakala said. He was slightly behind his sisters after they crossed the street.

The school’s principal, Carol Frodge, went to the hospital to offer support to the family.

The boy was crossing 164th Street SW at 52nd Avenue W. when he was struck. Details about what caused the accident were not immediately available.

The driver remained at the accident scene, Hynes said.
