A Kent man was seriously injured this morning when he was hit by a vehicle while crossing the road, the Kent Police Department reported.

Paramedics took the 54-year-old victim to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment.

The man was crossing 108th Avenue Southeast at Southeast 200th Street just after 5:30 a.m. today when, according to witnesses, he stepped into the path of a northbound vehicle and was struck. The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and was not injured, police said.

Based on a preliminary investigation, police believe the driver was going below the speed limit and had the right of way.

“The driver of the vehicle was quite upset by the collision and has completely cooperated with investigators,” Sgt. Jarod Kasner said.
