Everett, Police Blotter

Editor’s Update 9:20 PM: Everett Police Spokesman Aaron Snell just issued the following press release…

crash The Everett Police Department is investigating a serious injury collision.

Just after 5:00 pm today, officers responded to reports of a two car collision in the 5500 block of Evergreen Way. Arriving officers found two cars had collided head-on in the intersection of Highway Pl and Evergreen Way. All northbound lanes of traffic were blocked. Everett Fire extracted both drivers from their vehicles and immediately transported them to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett – Colby Campus.

Detectives with the Traffic Safety Unit responded to the scene. Based on initial indicators, a northbound vehicle, driven by a juvenile male, was travelling at a high rate of speed when it collided with a southbound vehicle, driven by a 61 year-old Mukilteo woman, turning onto Highway Pl. The force of the collision pushed the turning vehicle over the sidewalk and into a cement retaining wall. Both vehicles have been impounded as evidence and the collision remains under investigation. Criminal charges, if any, won’t be determined until the incident is fully investigated.

The juvenile driver was assessed at Providence then transported to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition. The woman remains at Providence with serious injuries.

Northbound Evergreen was closed for about two hours for the investigation but is now open to traffic.

    That’s a weird section of Evergreen, too. There are the two sets of stoplights right on top of each other. Much like Seaway Blvd, where the speed limit is 40, if you aren’t going 80 you’ve got a tailgater and other speedies all you.

      Well, he certainly didn’t get up to that high speed between one of those lights and the next. Stupid kid didn’t appreciate the reason for speed limits.

  2. Eleanore Says:

    The posted speed limit there is 35mph i do believe…the kid sounds like he was going to fast or the turning driver just didn’t see him

  3. Bourne Says:

    Was either driver impaired?

  4. Donkey Hotay Says:

    The force of that crash was impressive. I’d be interested to know what speed he was traveling. Certainly he was going too fast to allow for old ladies turning across his lane.

    I hope they both pull through.

    Speed Racer strikes again. Evergreen raceway in effect! If only there was an expert to update us.
