Man hit by truck seriously injured

EVERETT -- A man suffered serious injuries Sunday morning after a pickup truck slammed into an Everett Transit bus shelter where he was standing.
The crash occurred just after 10 a.m. Sunday outside of a McDonald's restaurant in the 2000 block of Everett Avenue. The injured man, 51, was taken by ambulance to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett before being transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He was listed in satisfactory condition Monday, police said.
Detectives specializing in collision investigations believe the driver, 66, was impaired when his Ford F-250 pickup veered into the bus shelter, Everett police officer Aaron Snell said.
"There will be testing to see what type of impairment," Snell said.
The driver also was taken to Providence where he was admitted for medical conditions not related to the collision, Snell said. He later was released.
The shelter, made of steel and Plexiglas, was destroyed. Everett Transit officials hope to replace it within the next two weeks.
When it was first installed about 12 years ago, the shelter cost about $5,000.
Its replacement will cost about half that amount. However, with labor, signs, benches and other costs, the price tag could reach about $5,000, Everett Transit officials said.
