A man in his 20s biking on the Ave collided with a man in his 40s walking in a crosswalk Thursday evening, sending both people to the hospital.
When Medics transported them shortly after 4:30 p.m., the man walking had serious injuries and the man biking was in critical condition.
We send them both our best wishes.
Police say the man on the bike was headed downhill (southbound) on the Ave approaching the mid-block crosswalk between NE 47th and NE 45th Streets. He was passing a stopped bus on the driver’s side and collided with a man walking eastbound in the crosswalk.
Traffic Collision Investigators shut down the area for a while, and their investigation is ongoing. Blood work is still pending, so it it not yet known if impairment was involved.
SFD units have left the scene. Police tape still up across the road, however. SPD has 4500 blk of the Ave blocked. pic.twitter.com/IF2oiP123M
