Editor’s Update 5:00pm: Here is the official press release just issued by the Everett Police Department…

At about 11:45 this morning, a call came in to 911 that a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office patrol car, two other vehicles and one pedestrian were involved in a serious collision at the intersection of 23rd Ave and Rockefeller. Aid transported four of the involved persons to Providence Regional Medical Center and the pedestrian, a 59 year-old male, to Harborview Regional Medical Center.

The patrol deputy is a 54 year-old male who has been with the agency for nine years. The three other victims involved were a 21 year-old male, a 44 year-old female and a 74 year-old male. Current status of all involved is unknown at this time.

The deputy’s patrol car and one passenger vehicle were directly involved in the collision, and a truck parked on the street was also struck.

The intersection was closed several hours for the investigation but is expected to re-open soon.

At the request of the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, the Washington State Patrol was asked to handle the investigation.

No updated information is expected tonight or through the weekend.

Editor’s Update 3:00pm: Per Everett Police spokesman Aaron Snell the injured include a pedestrian who was transported by Everett Medic Unit to Harborview Hospital in Seattle. A deputy and 2 other people who were in the Snohomish County Sheriff’s car and the driver of the grey SUV were taken to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. No updates on any of their injuries. The Washington State Patrol has taken the lead in the investigation with Everett Police and Snohomish County Sheriff’s Deputies also conducting concurrent investigations. As of this time 23rd and Rockefeller is still closed and that is likely to remain the case until this evening.
