Mill Creek man dies in 4-vehicle wreck on Highway 9

LAKE STEVENS -- A Mill Creek man was killed and two other people were seriously injured Friday night in a four-vehicle crash on Highway 9.
The head-on wreck happened about 10:45 p.m. just north of Highway 204.
A man in a Subaru Impreza was northbound on Highway 9 when he reportedly began passing a 1990 Ford pickup, according to the Washington State Patrol. The Subaru slammed into an oncoming Chevy pickup.
The driver of the Ford truck was unable to avoid the crash and struck the Subaru. The impact then sent the truck spinning into a fourth vehicle.
The Subaru's driver, Tyler Martel, 27, died at the scene, according to the State Patrol.
A Lake Stevens woman riding in his car was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The Chevy's driver, a Lake Stevens man, also was taken to Harborview. An update of their conditions was not known.
The other drivers were not injured.
The northbound lanes of the highway were closed for about five hours while troopers investigated. Three of vehicles were totaled in the crash, the State Patrol said.
