Woman Dies After Being Accidentally Struck by Vehicle

REDMOND, WA - A 70-year-old Redmond woman was struck and killed by a vehicle at about 4 a.m. this morning on Avondale Road.

The woman was crossing in the middle of the 11400 block of Avondale, towards the PCC grocery store, when an oncoming car hit her. She was not in a crosswalk when she was hit and died immediately at the scene.

The driver is cooperating with police and there is no evidence of DUI or reckless driving. The King County Medical Examiner will release the victim’s identity after notification of next of kin.
