The Washington State Patrol Major Accident Investigation Team is investigating two serious injury collisions involving Commercial Motor Vehicles that occurred in Snohomish County over the past few days. The first crash occurred at 9:55 p.m. last Thursday, February 4th in the northbound lanes of I-5 just north of the 88th St overpass. The collision involved two tractor/trailer rigs and two passenger vehicles. The driver of one of the semi trucks was seriously injured and airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Monday afternoon, a dump truck collided with a passenger car eastbound SR 522 just east of SR 9 injuring three occupants of the passenger car, one of them critically. All three occupants of the car were transported to Harborview Medical Center. Preliminary investigation shows the car may have been stopped for an unknown reason in the slow vehicle lane when it was struck from behind by the dump truck.
Investigators are looking for witnesses to both collisions. If you saw either of the Collisions or know someone who may have information, please call Detective Sergeant Jerry Cooper at (360) 805-1192; or Detective Curt Ladines (360) 805-1160.
