Student reportedly in stable condition after being struck by a vehicle Tuesday

An 18-year-old Bremerton High School student is reportedly in stable condition after being struck by a vehicle Tuesday evening at a crosswalk on 13th St. and Lincoln Ave., according to the Bremerton Police Department.

A BPD press release states the student was walking southbound on 13th St. wearing dark clothing, with headphones in. As he was midway through the crosswalk, he was struck by a passenger vehicle driven by a woman in her 70’s.

After officers arrived, they discovered the student was in critical condition with head injuries and was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle via helicopter. After speaking with the family of the victim on Wednesday, Nov. 20, officers were informed that he is in stable condition.

A preliminary investigation revealed speed and alcohol did not appear to be factors in the incident. The collision is currently under investigation.
