Two skateboarders in Marysville hit by vehicle
Two skateboarders Marysville were hit by a vehicle at approximately 8:15 p.m., Thursday, March 16, in the 6100 block of 100th Street NE. Marysville Fire District responders transported a male in his 20s with serious injuries and an 18-year-old male in stable condition. Both were taken to Providence Regional Medical Center. The driver is cooperating with Marysville Police in their investigation.
With spring beginning next week, more people will be heading outdoors. We remind both drivers and pedestrians to be alert and follow this advice:
• 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.
• 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.
