    Every night when the night shift gets off I see a stream of 5,6,7,8 Boeing employees run a completely red light at Airport and 29th, “traffic laws don’t apply to us because we have the super special Boeing entitlement.”

    I used to work with the guy in the silver car. The rumor is he probably isn’t going to make it, so sad.

  3. Brett Says:

    the guy in the smaller car for some reason did not see the truck, it was plain as day, clear, dry roads…I watched the whole thing. I really don’t know why the smaller car turned across the fwy when it did.
    The intersection is an uncontrolled(no light) left turn across 45mph traffic coming around a curve. I live near, ride a motorcycle, and see many accidents in the same area. I’m always white knuckled coming through that intersection.

    I’m pretty sure ramps and traffic flow aren’t the problem… I think it’s safe to say that the problem is notoriously bad drivers who don’t care about anyone else on the road. The lazy B really seems to crank those out. I completely agree with Bourne. Something needs to be done to slow these people down.

    • Diogenes Says:

      Slowing people down isn’t the solution. Too many drivers already think they can do whatever they want on the road as long as they are going slow. Change lanes without a signal? Check. Merge into highway speed traffic? Check. Talk on the phone? Check.

    I heard the crash walking out to my car this afternoon- it sounded like a bomb went off, then eerily quiet. After seeing numerous accidents there throughout the years, I really think that WADOT and Boeing need to figure out better ramps and traffic flow.

    Traffic detectives from the Everett Police Department were called out to the scene and they were able to identify the purple truck as a Dodge Ram but are still working on the ID of the silver car although they suspect it is a Toyota.

  7. Brett Says:

    I saw the accident, the smaller car cut directly in front of the truck. Speed was not the factor

  8. Bourne Says:

    I avoid the Boeing area completely now. These maniacs are either speeding to the union beer hall after the whistle blows or racing so as not be late to work again. Everett PD/WSP should set up radar traps along 526. They wold have a field day.
