Good Samaritan Has Hundreds Stolen While Rendering First Aid at Everett Car Accident
UPDATE: Everett Fire stations are acting as a drop off point for those wishing to donate to the good samaritan…The Washington State Patrol is asking for the public’s help in finding whomever took hundreds of dollars from a woman’s car while she gave first aid to an elderly man at an accident scene on I-5 Saturday afternoon. Trooper Keith Leary tells My Everett News that shortly after 1:00pm, a Toyota Camry was being driven northbound on I-5 near the Snohomish River Bridge when the driver, a 74-year-old man, suffered what likely was a medical problem. The car swerved across two lanes of traffic and slammed into a pickup truck. It then careened across the freeway and ended up in a drainage ditch. Several motorists stopped their cars to assist. Among the good samaritans was a nursing student who had just stopped at a cash machine. She had an envelope on her passenger car seat that contained several hundred dollars. After she jumped out of her car to render first aid to the elderly accident victim she returned to her car to find the envelope empty. Trooper Leary says the Washington State Patrol is hoping to get information from anyone who may have seen someone reaching into a car at the accident scene. A vehicle description or license plate number, description of the person or any other information would be greatly appreciated. You can call WSP at 360-654-1204. Leary says the person could also return the money to the Washington State Patrol district office on 116th street, west of I-5.
