A 56-year-old man is in critical condition after he was struck by a vehicle Sunday night while crossing Harrison Avenue Northwest in west Olympia.
Police responded to a 911 call about 7:55 p.m. near the intersection of Harrison and Milroy Street Northwest. According to police, the driver of a Ford Explorer was traveling in the eastbound lane of Harrison Avenue and hit the pedestrian.
The driver was identified as Olympia resident Jonathan James Woods, 30, who appeared Monday in Thurston County Superior Court on one count of vehicular assault. Bail was set at $10,000. Arraignment was set for Nov. 22.
According to court documents, Woods dialed 911 and stayed at the scene to talk with police before he was arrested. Police say alcohol may have been a factor. Woods had a 2010 conviction for driving under the influence, court documents show.
The victim was transported to Providence St. Peter Hospital with head and facial injuries, and was listed in critical condition, according to police.
