Updated: A tragic accident along Seaview Ave. early this morning has left a bicyclist dead.
At 4:30 this morning, police and medics responded to the 7000 block of Seaview Ave. — near the Shilshole Bay Marina — for a collision between a car and a man on a bike.
Seattle Fire attempted to revive the bicyclist, but he was declared dead on the scene.
The driver was evaluated for any signs of impaired, but none was detected, Seattle Police said. He was interviewed and released at the scene.
Photos shared with My Ballard by Lucas Bonnema, who arrived after the crash, show the vehicle stopped in the middle of Seaview Ave. just short of a crosswalk.
The Burke Gilman Trail runs parallel with Seaview Ave. There are streetlights along Seaview, but it can be dark in spots at night.
Seattle PD says its traffic detectives are investigating. (Thank you Lucas for the photos.)
