An 18-year-old Renton man was transported to Harborview Medical Center Tuesday night after being hit by a car on the entrance ramp to I-405 south from 85th Street.
According to a report from the state police, a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse driven by a 54-year-old Kirkland man struck another vehicle and pedestrian Tien G. Pham while trying to get around an accident on the entrance ramp.
According to the report, a 1991 Mazda driven by a 29-year-old Kent man was stopped, blocking the ramp to I-405 with multiple pedestrians outside exchanging information from a previous accident when the Mitsubishi entered the ramp, drove between the Mazda and the Jersey barrier and struck the barrier, the Mazda and Pham.
The accident is still under investigation, but state police are pursuing vehicular assault charges against the 54-year-old.
The roadway was blocked for a total of three hours and six minutes.
