Traffic safety detectives from the Everett Police Department were called to investigate after a pedestrian was killed after being struck by a vehicle in the 2200 block of Everett Avenue.

Around 5:30 PM Friday evening Snohomish 911 received reports of a vehicle versus pedestrian crash on Everett Avenue near the intersection with Rainier. Medics were called and attempted life-saving efforts but those were not successful.

The person who died was an adult male who was crossing the street. Lt. Robert Goetz with Everett Police tells detectives are just starting their investigation and Everett Avenue is closed between Rainier and Broadway.

The vehicle driver is cooperating with detectives and Goetz said there did not appear to be any signs of impairment or reckless driving, but the investigation is ongoing.
