The King County Medical Examiner’s office has confirmed that a man in his 40s, who was struck by a car in a crosswalk while out walking his dog in Kirkland on Monday, has died. Kyle Warnick was sent to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with life-threatening injuries Monday afternoon.
Kirkland Police and Fire Department personnel were dispatched to a reported car and pedestrian collision on 119th Place Northeast and Northeast 144th Street at 3:30 p.m.
The initial investigation at the scene revealed the male was crossing from west to east when he was struck by a Toyota Prius driven by a woman in her 50s.
The driver told police she was making a left turn onto 119th Place Northeast from Northeast 144th Street and did not see the man in the crosswalk.
“The vehicle impacted the pedestrian who was treated at the scene by Kirkland Fire Department personnel for severe head trauma and was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for what appeared to be life threatening injuries,” Kirkland Police Lt. John Haslip said.
The Kirkland Police Major Accident Investigation Team was called in to process the scene.
The female was the only occupant of the vehicle.
“Alcohol does not appear to be a contributing factor,” Haslip said. “The female driver has been cooperative in the investigation.”
