A Redmond pedestrian killed Nov. 8 has been identified as Catherine Yazzie, 53, according to a Redmond Police news release.
Yazzie died after being hit around 5:45 p.m., while crossing an unmarked crosswalk on SW Veterans Way at the intersection with SW Kalama Avenue, which is near her home, police said. A 1993 Saab, driven by Dalton Curry, 22, of Terrebonne, collided with Yazzie while she crossed the street, police said.
Yazzie, who was walking home from Fred Meyer at the time of the collision, was transported for emergency treatment, but police learned she had died a few hours later, police said.
Curry immediately stopped and stayed at the scene and has fully cooperated with investigators, police said. Police are still investigating the collision, but say alcohol or drug impairment do not appear to be factors.
The intersection was closed for several hours after the crash, police said.
Police are also seeking information about a white Chevrolet Silverado with a canopy that was seen driving north on SW Veterans Way at the time of the crash, police said. The pickup either continued north or turned east onto Kalama after the crash, police said. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call 541-693-6911.
Because of the recent return to standard time, police ask drivers, as well as bicyclists and pedestrians, to be extra careful on roads, which are still crowded after dark. Pedestrians and bikers are asked to wear light-colored or protective clothing and drivers are asked to slow down, pay attention and not assume the road is free of obstacles.
