Marysville man killed by vehicle while crossing street

The death of an elderly Marysville man who was hit by a car while crossing the street on Saturday morning is being investigated by police.

According to Marysville police Lt. Jeff Goldman, the Washington auto accident occurred around 5:20 a.m. in the 9600 block of State Avenue, in Marysville.

Rescue crews said the man was dead when they arrived, Marysville Fire District spokeswoman Stephanie Price said. She also said that the man apparently was not in a crosswalk.

According to Goldman, there is no indication of any improper conduct by the driver of the Chevy Malibu that hit the man. The driver and his wife were headed south on State Avenue when the Seattle car accident happened, he said.

“Obviously, they’re pretty distraught,” Goldman said. They were cooperating with police.
