A woman biking on I-5 near the 520 interchange was struck and
critically injured early Saturday. My Edmonds News reports that the woman was critically injured.
Daina Elena Harrison was riding her bicycle northbound in the far left lane on I-5 just south of the Ship Canal bridge when she was hit at 5:16 a.m. by a Seattle man driving Lincoln Town Car, Washington State Patrol Trooper Julie Startup said. While the investigation is ongoing, Startup said it’s unlikely that the driver of the Town Car — 60-year-old Larry Walker — didn’t see the bicyclist until it was too late to avoid a collision.
It is unknown how she ended up on I-5, which is off limits to bicycle riding.
Update: we originally reported her injuries as critical. Fortunately, her injuries are non-life-threatening.
