Big rig crash leaves Everett man dead

An Everett man died when two big trucks smashed into each other on Highway 526 early Friday morning.

Everett police Sgt. Robert Goetz said that the crash happened about 4:15am.

A tractor-trailer heading east was pulling through the intersection at Everett Mall Way onto Highway 527 when it apparently was hit broadside by a northbound rig. That truck was not hauling a trailer.

The Everett man was ejected from his cabin during the truck accident and died at the scene.

The other driver, a 32 year old man from Fife, was taken to Providence Everett Medical Center. He was treated and released, Goetz said.

Goetz also said that the intersection is controlled by traffic lights and police are trying to determine who had the right of way at the time of the crash.

The Everett intersection was closed for nearly seven hours as police cleaned up the mess from the Washington Truck Accident.
