Elderly pedestrian hit and killed by car

A 94-year-old Shoreline woman died Wednesday when she was hit by a car while crossing a street in an intersection in North Seattle/Shoreline, according to the State Patrol.

State Patrol reported that the woman, Ruby Blood, died in the Seattle pedestrian accident when a car making a left turn from Northeast 145th Street onto 15th Avenue Northeast hit her at about 11:15 a.m. The driver, a 77 year old Bothell woman, had a green light, according to a news release.

Another pedestrian, 67-year-old Shoreline resident Valentyna Shor, was also struck by the vehicle but did not have serious injuries. State Patrol trooper Jeff Merrill said that a preliminary investigation shows that Blood and Shor began crossing the street in a crosswalk with a green light but made it only about halfway before the light turned red.

According to Merrill, the automobile crash is still under investigation, and the driver of the vehicle has not been arrested.
