Police are investigating a hit-and-run that killed a pedestrian in Seattle’s East Queen Anne neighborhood Wednesday evening.
Officers responded to the 2400 block of Aurora Avenue North around 7:15 p.m., Seattle police Detective Patrick Michaud said. He didn’t have information about the events that preceded the crash.
Seattle fire crews also responded to the scene to treat the pedestrian, a 41-year-old man, said fire spokesperson David Cuerpo. Paramedics transported the man to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition, where he was pronounced dead.
No arrests have been made, Michaud said.
Traffic was blocked in the southbound lanes on Aurora Avenue North while detectives investigated the scene.
Aurora Avenue North ranks among the routes in Seattle with the highest number of crashes, according to city data. As of early November, the busy thoroughfare had seen eight fatal or serious-injury crashes this year, two of which involved pedestrians.
Last year, the Seattle Department of Transportation recorded 15 serious injury and fatal crashes on the road, eight of them involving pedestrians.
