Toddler ‘critical but stable’ after pedestrian crash in Edmonds

Another victim, a teenager, has been released from the hospital. The driver cooperated with police.

EDMONDS — A toddler was in “critical but stable condition” a day after being hit by a vehicle at a marked crosswalk in Edmonds, police said on Saturday.

The 3-year old boy and a 15-year-old girl were hit just after 3 p.m. on Friday while crossing 220th Street SW at 80th Avenue W, according to a news release from Edmonds police. The driver, a 61-year-old Mountlake Terrace resident, was headed east when the crash happened. She immediately stopped and remained at the intersection, cooperating with police when they arrived, the news release says.

The teenage girl was initially taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle to be treated for injuries and has since been discharged. As of 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, the toddler was still in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

Two family members, an adult woman and another child in a stroller, were also crossing the street at the time of the crash but were not injured.

Police don’t suspect that drugs or alcohol were involved, according to the news release.

“It is unknown if speed or distractions were a factor. That will be part of the overall investigation,” police said in the news release. “Some video was captured and provided to the police.”

The road was closed for about four hours. The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the emergency.

“While the initial available facts and circumstances did not support an immediate criminal investigation, any potential charges or traffic infractions would come from the information gained from the ongoing investigation,” the news release says.
