"The driver was processed for DUI and vehicular assault," said Washington State Patrol Trooper Keith Leary.
The 56-year-old victim attempted to cross Highway 527 in a crosswalk Near Thrashers Corner at 9:25 p.m. when he was hit by a Chevy Tahoe.
The driver of the SUV, a 46-year-old Bothell man, immediately stopped and stayed at the scene with the victim while emergency personnel responded.
"It was dark outside but that intersection has overhead lighting," Leary said. "The driver was pulling out from a restaurant during the time of the accident."
