The man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail Sunday afternoon for investigation of vehicular homicide. He is expected to appear Monday in Everett District Court, where a judge will decide if there is probable cause to hold him.
The man reportedly lost control of his Ford Explorer on northbound Highway 529. The Explorer struck a guardrail, rolled and then crashed into a median near Steamboat Slough. A passenger in the vehicle was ejected.
He died at the scene. His identity has not been released.
The driver, believed to be a 40-year-old Ocean Shores man, was taken to a local hospital. Once he was released, police arrested him.
