I was riding along a bike trail where it crosses a street as a crosswalk (westbound on the BG intersecting Brooklyn in Seattle). It was dark and raining hard, so I was being super careful as I went into this notoriously dangerous intersection. A southbound SUV had stopped for two bikes about 20 feet in front of me. Right as I went through the intersection, a car behind the SUV, not understanding why the SUV didn't move, passed the SUV on the outside and hit me. I bounced off the hood and landed a few feet away on the sidewalk. College student driver had seen the first two bikers but not me. She admitted her mistake.
