A Westport teen was seriously injured when she tried to cross state Route 105 on foot Wednesday morning, Oct. 6, south of the State Route 105 spur near Westport.
According to the Washington State Patrol, a 46-year-old Tacoma man was southbound on state Route 105 at around 9 a.m. The 16-year-old pedestrian was standing on the northbound shoulder, and attempted to cross the roadway, running into the side of the Tacoma man’s Dodge Ram pickup. The pedestrian was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with serious injuries.
The pickup came to rest on the southbound shoulder. The state patrol reports the Tacoma man was driving on a suspended license and cites the cause of the accident as the pedestrian’s failure to yield the right-of-way. The roadway was blocked for about two hours, the state patrol said.
