Delivery truck clips pedestrian in Creston-Kenilworth
Both police and medical emergency first responders were called to the intersection of S.E. Chavez Boulevard (formerly 39th) and Gladstone Street, in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood, at 7:21 a.m. on Tuesday, June 9.
Arriving police officers cordoned off the intersection to begin an investigation that eventually brought a total of seven officers to the scene, some from the Bureau's Traffic Division.
A "Peet's Coffee" Ford Transit truck was stopped, facing southbound on Chavez Boulevard, just south of the intersection. The passenger's side front of the truck showed damage, as did the windshield.
"A pedestrian was struck by the vehicle while crossing the street; the victim was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital for non-life-threatening injuries," said PPB Public Information Officer Natasha Haunsperger.
"The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators," Haunsperger told THE BEE, adding, "This is an ongoing traffic investigation."
