Former Richland Swimmer Hit by Car

A 22-year-old former Richland High School swimmer was hit by a car while crossing a Seattle street Wednesday night. It was reported that she sustained a serious head injury in the accident. She was in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center. The driver of the car was a 20-year-old man.

The 22-year-old was a swim champion, and was the first swimmer to make it onto the high school’s Wall of Fame, said her prior swim coach.

“She was an amazing athlete,” the coach said. “She was an extremely outgoing girl who loved life, every minute of it.”

Our hearts certainly go out to this woman’s family and friends during this difficult time.
