Man badly injured in Lynnwood crash

LYNNWOOD — An early-morning crash near Lynnwood on Thursday left one man hospitalized with a possible broken neck.

The crash was reported just after 1 a.m. on the ramp from northbound I-5 to southbound I-405, Washington State Patrol trooper Keith Leary said. The crash is being investigated as a case of vehicular assault and hit-and-run.

A trooper was on patrol at the time and attempted to stop a sport utility vehicle that was speeding, Leary said.

The driver apparently fled from the trooper and lost control of the vehicle. The SUV rolled over, striking a guard rail.

The driver ran from the scene. A police dog search was unsuccessful, Leary said.

A passenger in the SUV, a 27-year-old Lynnwood man, was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He was listed Thursday afternoon in serious condition in the intensive care unit.

The investigation continues.
