Pedestrian Hit Twice near Highway 20

A pedestrian was seriously injured last week after being struck by two vehicles near Highway 20, according to news reports.
The 20-year-old pedestrian accident occurred Thursday when a man was attempting to refuel his vehicle along Regatta Drive near the intersection of Highway 20 at 7:30 p.m. when he was hit by a 22-year-old man driving a motorcycle.  The pedestrian flew into the southbound lane during the collision, and was then run over by a 2000 Subaru four-door Legacy, driven by a 23-year-old Oak Harbor man.
The pedestrian was rushed to Whidbey General Hospital and was then airlifted to Harborview Medical Center following the collision. It is unclear what his current condition is, but hospital staff told news reports Saturday he was listed in critical condition.
The motorcycle driver was also injured and was taken to Whidbey General Hospital. He was treated and released Thursday evening.
Regatta Drive was closed for several hours following the collision.
As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I’m saddened to hear about this pedestrian accident. I hope the man is able to recover from all his injuires. I urge pedestrians to always stay clear of the roadway and shoulder of the road if possible. Use flares or lights to make sure you are seen in the dark if you are near the road.
