Seattle Police and Fire responded to a report of a man pinned between a delivery truck and loading dock early Friday morning at the QFC on Holman Road NW.
Just after 5:00 Friday morning, a delivery truck driver backed her truck into the loading dock area behind the QFC at 9999 Holman Road NW. The driver got out of her truck and walked into the store to get an employee to assist her with unloading. When the driver and the employee returned to the truck they saw the man pinned between the loading dock and truck.
The workers immediately called 911 and Seattle Fire and police responded. The victim, an adult male, was transported to Harborview Medical Center via SFD medics with life-threatening injuries.
Detectives from the Traffic Collision Investigation Squad (TCIS) responded, processed the scene, and have begun their investigation. Whenever it is possible, a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) officer will respond to the scene to evaluate the driver in serious injury collisions. In this case, the driver did not show any signs of impairment at all and has been cooperating with the investigation. This remains an active and on-going TCIS investigation.
