• Bellevue pedestrian killed in crash with car


    BELLEVUE, Wash. - Bellevue police said a pedestrian was killed after being hit by an SUV Monday morning, and officers are looking for a second vehicle that may have been involved in the crash.

     Northbound 150th Avenue Northeast was closed at Southeast 38th Street while officers investigate.

    Police said the victim is a 77-year-old Seattle woman. It is not yet known if she was in the crosswalk, but she was wearing dark clothing when she was hit and dragged by a Jeep shortly after 6 a.m.  

    The driver of the Jeep is an 18-year-old Bellevue man.  Police said he is cooperating with the investigation.

    Officers said drugs or alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash.

    Icy car windows that were not defrosted and failing to look right for pedestrians contributed to the fatality. Police say it's too early to tell if there will be charges, and the investigation could take up to two weeks. 

    After checking a traffic camera at the intersection, police found video of another vehicle that may have been involved in the crash and want to talk to its driver.  It's a white, 2012 or newer Ford F-150 crew cab truck with a tool box and black writing on the door.
