A 15-year-old Mariner High School student who was struck by a car while crossing 120th Street on Thursday, Sept. 28, was released from Harborview Medical Center and returned home a day later, according to the Mukilteo School District.

“School had just been dismissed and her [the student’s] mother was waiting for her on the other side of 120th Street,” district spokesperson Andy Muntz said. “As she attempted to cross the road, she was struck by a car.”

The collision was reported at 2:11 p.m., said Leslie Hynes, spokesperson for Snohomish County Fire District 1. Hynes added that her injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

The driver of the car was also a student, Muntz said, adding that the driver said it “was just an unfortunate accident.”

“I’m told that the car that hit her was not speeding,” Muntz said, “as there was a great deal of foot traffic in the area at that time.”
