Pedestrian Seriously Injured Crossing Evergreen Way Mid-Block in South Everett

March 5, 2016

Everett, Police Blotter


There is no crosswalk where the man tried to go across five lanes.

A pedestrian was seriously injured when he tried to cross Evergreen Way just south of Wal-Mart Saturday afternoon.

Around 2:15 PM a silver Kia was northbound on Evergreen in the 11400 block near Panda Express and Wal-Mart when it struck a man.

Everett Police Traffic Investigators were called to the scene and northbound traffic was delayed for the investigation for about 45 minutes. The preliminary report from the police said the man crossing was not in a crosswalk and the driver in the crash stayed and was cooperating.

The pedestrian was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center with serious injuries.

Here’s a photo from the scene. Click to enlarge.

    Out of the shadows and into the grill of a reasonably priced car is no way to go through life.

    The police are nonexistent when it comes to speeders, red light runners, and Jay walkers. I’ve seen quotes saying pedestrians have the right of way, even outside crosswalks. Evergreen way and Everett Mall way are ridiculous. It’s a joke…like driving in India or some other developing countries try. I watched a jay Walker get hit in that area a few months back. Darwinism at it’s finest I suppose.

    This area is full of serious drug users, take one look at fast Eddie’s gas station. Don’t we have laws agianst panhandlers, stealing shopping carts, littering, jaywalking, smoking pipe outdoors, were are the police??

  4. Eleanore Says:

    Do these morons that cross the street NOT in a marked crosswalk get ticketed for jaywalking?? they should be

  5. Anon Says:

    This driver’s life may very well be ruined because of this loser illegally crossing on a busy 50mph highway.

  6. Robert Says:

    Do these stupid vagrants not realize that the speed limit on that stretch of road is 50 mph? Running across 5 lanes of traffic moving at 50 mph is just as reckless as darting across the freeway. We sure do have a breed of stupid living on the streets of Everett.

    I’ve joked with my husband many times Evergreen is like a real life game for Frogger. And it doesn’t help that pedestrians in general don’t adhere to the nighttime bright clothing colors logic. This accident happened in the daylight but I cannot tell you how many black shadows I see sprinting across the 5+ lane road in the dark.

    That poor car. Crackheads running across evergreen/99 deserve to get hit but where does that leave the driver…screwed? At the very least he will hve to pay an insurance deductible, if he doesn’t get sued by the crackhead, I mean, jaywalker.
