A pedestrian was killed during the weekend when she tried to dart across a busy Everett highway, according to news reports.
The accident occurred around 11 p.m. Sunday when a woman tried to walk across busy SR-99 in south Everett, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The pedestrian “made it across the southbound lanes in the 12200 block just after 11 p.m., but was struck by a car in the right northbound lane.”
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The person driving the vehicle who crashed into the woman stopped at the scene of the collision. Drunken driving was not a factor in the case, and the driver was not charged in the accident, according to officers.
As an Everett personal injury lawyer, I’m saddened to hear about this pedestrian accident. My condolences go out to this woman’s friends and family during this difficult time. I urge pedestrians to only cross the street at marked crosswalks to ensure their safety. I’m glad to hear the driver wasn’t at fault for this collision and no charges will be made.
