Marysville – 02/20/2018 4:00 PM
At about 06:50 AM this morning, Marysville Police responded to a
reported collision in the 11700 block of State Ave.
A blue Honda sedan was Northbound and a Toyota van was Southbound
turning east into a business parking lot.
The vehicles collided almost head on in the northbound lanes. The 26 year old male Granite Falls driver of
the Honda was extricated from his vehicle by the Marysville Fire Department and
transported to the Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett with critical
injuries. At the time of this press
release, the driver of the Honda was undergoing surgery at Providence Medical
Center. The 28 year old male Stanwood
driver of the Toyota was transported to the same hospital for evaluation and he
was later released. There were no other
passengers in the vehicles.
The collision investigation has led to information that the blue Honda
and another dark passenger car were headed northbound on State Ave approaching
116th St NE. Both vehicles
were traveling in the inside lane just prior to the collision. It is believed the Honda car involved in the
collision was travelling behind the other dark colored passenger car. The preliminary investigation has determined
that speed is a factor in this collision.
If anyone witnessed the vehicles driving prior to the collision or has
information regarding the collision, please contact the Marysville Police
Department Collision Investigation Unit at 360-363-8300.
