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.
We’ll update as we learn more.
UPDATE: 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.
This is the second serious collision between a dump truck and someone on a bike this month. A man was seriously injured by a tandem dump truck at Howell and Yale around the same time November 13, just a few blocks from Thursday’s collision. The driver in that incident left the scene southbound on I-5.
Pike and Boren was also the scene of the tragic death of Nap Cantwell this spring. Cantwell was biking to work when he collided with a van the morning of May 29. He died a week later.
