A Bellevue teen has serious injuries following a crash between a bicycle and SUV in the Factoria neighborhood of Bellevue. This morning at 7:32 a.m., Bellevue Police and fire responded to the intersection of SE Newport Way and 129th Place SE for a report of a vehicle that had struck a bicyclist. When first responders arrived, they found the cyclist on the roadway with serious injuries, and a 2017 Toyota 4runner with front end damage. The cyclist, a 17 year-old female Bellevue resident, was immediately transported to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. The driver of the SUV, a 48 year-old female Bellevue resident, remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators.
At this time, investigators believe that the motorist failed to see the cyclist, who was traveling westbound on Newport way, and made a left turn in front of the bicycle. This crash is being investigated by the Bellevue Police accident investigation team, and 129th Place SE remains closed during the investigation.
