EPD officers in the 9700 block of 19th SE Saturday night.

Detectives with the Traffic Safety Unit are investigating a hit and run collision that killed a female in Everett.

Just after 8:00 pm on September 8th, officers were dispatched to the 9700 block of 19th Ave SE on the report of hit and run collision. Responding officers found an adult female had been struck and killed by a vehicle that did not remain at the scene.

Detectives with the Traffic Safety Unit believe the female, in her late 50’s, was crossing 19th Ave SE in an eastbound direction when a northbound vehicle struck her. At this time, detectives believe the suspect vehicle is a red SUV likely to have damage to the front.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office took custody of the body to determine cause and manner of death and will provide identity once family has been notified.

19th Ave SE was closed for about 2 hour during the investigation.

Anyone with information about the incident, suspect(s), or involved vehicle is asked to call the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257-8450 or Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS.

The road is closed roughly between Alfy’s and Winco.

19th Avenue SE in the Eastmont Neighborhood of south Everett is closed in both directions in the 9700 block (between Alfy’s and Winco) as Everett Police investigate a fatal incident.

Detectives from EPD’s traffic safety unit are trying to determine exactly how an adult female was killed. Shortly after 8:00 PM witnesses called Snohomish 911 to report a woman in the roadway on 19th SE. Medics were called to the scene and determined the woman was deceased.

Early indications are it is a hit and run of some type but the investigation is in the very early stages. We will update this report as more information is made available by Everett Police.

As always if you saw something or know something you are urged to call the Everett Police Tip Line at (425) 257-8450.
