Sheriff Brian Burnett is saddened to report on July 25, 2018 at approximately 6:30pm the Chelan County Sheriff’s responded to a vehicle versus bicyclist collision on Icicle Road near the intersection with Prowell Street in Leavenworth.
The bicyclist was a 9 year old female who was struck by a passing vehicle.
A Chelan County Deputy, who was responding to a different non-emergent call for service, witnessed the collision and immediately requested medical aid and additional Deputies. The Deputy then began life saving measures until relieved by responding medical aid units. Attempts to revive the child were unsuccessful.
An investigation was conducted last night and will continue today with the assistance of the Washington State Patrol. This is clearly a tragic event with multiple families affected. The driver of the vehicle did not show any signs of impairment.
