Two pedestrians were reportedly hit by a vehicle near the crosswalk outside the Vashon movie theater this evening (Thursday, January
15th).

Island residents related that conditions were dark and rainy. Heavy
intermittent rain today may have contributed to low visibility for
both the pedestrians and drivers.

Vashon island purports to be “walk friendly” according to multiple
sources but this is far from the first instance of pedestrians or
bikers to be injured due to poor visibility.

The condition of the pedestrians is currently unknown. Further details
are scarce. A reminder to all out on our roads, be it via bike, foot,
car, or horse… please use caution.
