I forgot to link to this in this morning’s open thread, but this is sad. Glad she’s doing OK.
A woman was struck and dragged by a dump truck at Pike and Boren shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday morning. The 25-year-old was taken to Harborview in stable condition.
The woman appears to have no serious injuries or fractures, according to the Fire Department. EMTs arrived on the scene first and pulled her from under the truck.
She told firefighters she was hit and dragged by the dump truck. Medics then transported her to the hospital.
She’s doing well, and for this story, that’s obviously the most important thing. But these sorts of incidents are far too common. Sometimes reading Seattle Bike Blog is just a litany of horrible accidents.
