Crazy Night

We had a kid get hit and possibly killed outside the house last night. He got into a fight with his girlfriend driving up Silverdale Way stopped the car in the middle of the road and got out. Another car didn't see him and hit him. He flew approximately 40ft the life flighted him to Harborview. The Police were outside from about 10 until 0400.

Here are the pics of the scene this morning.

Where the car ended up in relationship to our road.


Self explanatory.


Looking up the hill at all of the paint marks. The car in the distance is the one that hit the guy.



What is left of the heavy volumes of blood that was on the road.



The car....

I unfortunately slept through the actual incident. I was awake after the ambulance left and I was awake until about 0230. At about 0200 I took a pot of coffee down to the investigators.

He was in serious condition, but just got a call from the neighbor that the downgraded him to critical. I can't imagine that a car strike at 45 is pleasant or nice on the body.

Not sure if being a first responder desensitizes you from situations like this but last month, when I was leaving the bar at 1am, I saw two people get hit by a speeding car. The pedestrians were in a marked crosswalk but they were crossing against the light. The car had the "right of way" as the driver had the green light but he was also doing close to double the speed limit. The two pedestrians were trying to catch up with friends that had already crossed so they ran and were hit. Watched them fly through the air. The girl died in her friend's arms and the guy she was crossing with was taken to hospital but passed away the next day. Even with all the adrenaline, once the police, fire, and EMS were on scene, I went back to my truck and couldn't move for an hour. Was just in shock at how a night out ended like this. The two people were young. Both were in their early 20s. Later found out through a friend that the girl that was hit and killed was a mutual friend's girlfriend's friend so this hit us all pretty hard. I wish this experience on no one. Reading about it in the news does nothing to me. Being there and watching this happen is another story.

Last night on my way to the bar, ironically, the same bar as the other two pedestrians were killed, at the main intersection just south of where the above incident happened, I came up on the aftermath of a skateboarder that was hit. He too was crossing against the light in a marked crosswalk and got hit. Heard the news this morning, he passed away.
