A pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle on U.S. Highway 101 east of Port Angeles last week has been upgraded to satisfactory condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, a hospital spokesperson said.
Kassandra D. Crooks, 25, of Port Angeles failed to obey the crosswalk signal Tuesday night at the intersection of Highway 101 and South Brook Avenue when she was struck by a 2003 Chevy Suburban driven by a Sequim resident, according to a State Patrol report.
Crooks was transported to Olympic Medical Center and transferred to Harborview, the State Patrol said. She was originally listed in critical condition, but her condition was upgraded, Harborview spokesperson Susan Gregg said Sunday.
The State Patrol said Crooks was issued an infraction for failure to yield at a crosswalk signal after she ran across Highway 101, which spans five lanes, including a turning lane, at that location.
