MARYSVILLE – Two skateboarders were hit by a vehicle at approximately 8:15 p.m. Thursday in the 6100 block of 100th St NE.

Marysville Fire District responders transported a man in his 20s with serious injuries and an 18-year-old man in stable condition.

Both were taken to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. The driver is cooperating with Marysville police in their investigation.

With spring beginning next week, more people will be heading outdoors. The fire district offers this advice:

For Drivers:

•Look out for pedestrians at all times. Often, pedestrians – especially younger ones – may not be where you would expect.

•Watch for pedestrians when pulling into and out of driveways.

•Follow speed limits, especially in school zones and on neighborhood streets.

•Never text while driving. For Pedestrians:

•Wear a helmet every time you ride a bicycle or skateboard.

•Wear bright colors or reflective clothing if you are near traffic at night.

•Make eye contact with drivers when crossing busy streets.

•Walk defensively. Know what’s going on around you.

Low-cost bicycle and multi-sport helmets provided by Safe Kids are available at all Marysville Fire District stations and can be custom fitted. Find more information at www.marysvillefiredistrict.org.
