One adult male, possibly in his 40s, was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after suffering "critical injuries" in a bicycle/vehicle accident in the 28000 block of Military Road South on Friday morning.

Federal Way Police Department (FWPD) spokeswoman Cathy Schrock indicated that the driver of the vehicle in the accident, a 31-year-old male, was in custody at FWPD and "being evaluated for other contributing factors such as drugs and/or alcohol."
