Female fatally struck by dump truck near Redmond

A female pedestrian was killed after she was struck by a dump truck traveling eastbound on State Route 202 at 218th Avenue Northeast near Sahalee Way in unincorporated King County near Redmond on Tuesday afternoon.

According to Washington State Patrol (WSP) public information officer Rick Johnson, at 2:20 p.m. the female was walking along the shoulder of 202 in the same direction as the truck when she walked into the road and was hit.

WSP identified the woman as Janie Cook, 44, from Bellevue, and her next of kin was notified. The uninjured driver was identified as Clinton Roberson, 43, of Monroe.

Johnson said an on-scene detective reported that the driver slammed on his brakes and tried to avoid the female.

There were no other vehicles on the road at the time.

All roads were closed near the accident for three hours, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation Twitter page.

The Reporter will add to this story when more information becomes available.
