Kent, WA – Teen on Scooter Critically Injured in Crosswalk Collision on 116th Ave SE

Kent, WA (February 2, 2024) – A 17-year-old girl riding a scooter was critically injured after being struck by a car in a crosswalk. The incident occurred on the 23400 block of 116th Ave SE near Meridian Middle School around 7:20 a.m., Friday, February 2.

The teen, who wasn’t wearing a helmet, was thrown against a stationary car in the opposite lane and airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition. The 49-year-old driver from Kent remained at the scene, cooperating with police, who have ruled out intoxicants as a crash factor.

Witness Nicole Norman highlighted the dangers of the road, citing excessive speed and poor lighting. The community calls for improved safety measures at the crosswalk, noting the frequent pedestrian use by students. The city is urged to address these concerns to prevent future incidents. The investigation is ongoing.
