Pedestrian stuck by vehicle

TULALIP - A 35-year-old man was struck by a vehicle Tuesday evening and was airlifted to Harborview with serious injuries.

The driver of the vehicle was driving along 35th Avenue NE on the Tulalip Reservation when he said something struck his windshield, shattering it. 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.
