A sad scene on I-5 in Everett, WA Friday afternoon. Washington State Patrol Troopers say right around 3:00pm they believe a 94-year-old man driving a mini van had a medical issue and rear ended a car going north on I-5 just before Everett Avenue. The van then lost control hitting another vehicle before striking the jersey wall near the Everett Avenue on ramp. The man was pronounced dead at the scene and his 86-year-old wife was injured. She was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. The drivers of the other two cars involved in the crash were not injured. The accident and subsequent investigation clogged up northbound streets through Everett for hours as drivers tied up Broadway, Evergreen Way and Colby to avoid I-5.
