Kirkland Police and Fire Department Respond to Child Struck by Vehicle in Parking Lot


Kirkland, WA – Just after noon today, Kirkland Police Officers responded along with Kirkland Fire on a report of a child hit by a vehicle in the Safeway Parking lot located at 13636 100th Ave NE. Fire and Paramedic Units worked tirelessly to save the three-year-old boys life, but despite their efforts, the child passed away on scene due to his injuries. The adult female driver of the involved vehicle remained on scene and was fully cooperating with the investigation.  The driver did not show any initial signs of impairment. The Kirkland Police Traffic Unit is conducting the investigation and is still currently on scene.  The accident took place in the parking lot as the vehicle was moving and it appears the boy came out between parked vehicles. The Kirkland Police Department, Kirkland Fire Department, and the City of Kirkland, would like to express our deepest sympathies to the boy’s family.
