Neighbor in need: Shoreline man hit by car

Friday, June 22, 2012

Shoreline resident Toni Nyman wants to alert the community to a neighbor in need.

She reports that Dave Olson, an employee at a small family-owned business called Video Factory on NE 145th between 15th and 17th NE, was hit by a car last week while he was walking home from work.

She says he "was hit by a driver who pulled onto the sidewalk and sent him flying. The hit-and-run driver stopped just long enough to see if Dave was alive; then he drove off."

She continues, "Dave is a guy in his 50's, with no insurance. He ended up with a broken leg and some damage to his hip. Although he will not require surgery, his medical expenses - and his loss of income - will be devastating. Many of us who frequent the store very much wish to help him out." 

Toni is working with the store owner to host a barbeque to collect money for Dave but in the meantime she wants to let people know they can donate at the Video Factory store.

She says that "Dave is a local guy who really could use the support of his community."

The phone number for Video Factory is 206-363-0839,

Hi. There are several great fundraising websites such as You Caring that can make it really easy for people to contribute money even if they can't come to the BBQ. Thanks for letting us know about Dave.
