Pedestrian Struck by Vehicle

A 35-year-old man struck by a vehicle Tuesday was airlifted to a trauma center with serious injuries, officials said.
 
The driver of the vehicle was driving along 35th Ave NE on the Tulalip Reservation when according to him, something struck his windshield, shattering it, authorities said.

The driver stopped his vehicle immediately on the roadway at the 7000 block and got out to investigate.  It was then he saw the victim lying off the roadway and called 911. 

There were no witnesses to the accident, but family members of the victim said they believed he was near the roadway talking on his cellphone.  The victim is believed to be a transient living on the Tulalip Reservation, officials said.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident, but no criminal charges against the driver are expected at this time.
