EVERETT -- An Everett man was charged Wednesday with vehicular homicide in connection with a fatal crash on the U.S. 2 trestle in December.
Prosecutors allege that Dominic Anthony Tarrell Agostini, 25, was drunk when he drove his car onto the trestle's pedestrian walkway and struck Darren Streeter, 47.
Streeter was thrown over the side of the trestle and fatally injured.
The walkway is separated from the road by a concrete barrier. To get onto the walkway, the car apparently rolled over a raised median, went over a raised berm and around several metal pylons, police said at the time.
Streeter was struck about 11:50 p.m., roughly three-quarters of a mile east of Everett.
Streeter and Theresa Dubs, then 55, had run out of gas and were walking to find some,
Dubs was about two blocks behind Streeter when she felt the car brush past her, according to charging papers filed in Snohomish County Superior Court. She heard the crash and then couldn't find Streeter.
When police arrived, they found him on the grass below the trestle. He had been knocked off the walkway and fell nearly 30 feet.
Agostini was behind the wheel of the car, which had crashed into a concrete barrier further down the walkway, court papers show.
Agostini allegedly told police he had been drinking beer, and that someone may have spiked his beer with prescription anxiety medication. Laboratory tests reportedly showed evidence of the drug and an alcohol level in excess of the legal limit.
