One man injured in I-5 crash in Everett

A Sultan man, 25, was hospitalized Tuesday after a one-car crash along northbound I-5 in Everett, near Marine View Drive.

The crash happened about 3:45 p.m., said trooper Mark Francis with the Washington State Patrol.

A Snohomish woman, 23, was driving a Saab station wagon. She was attempting a lane change and somehow lost control, Francis said. The car struck a barrier and then spun around, facing the wrong direction.

The Sultan man was in the front seat. He was taken to a local hospital with a possible concussion and other injuries. He is expected to survive.

The driver was uninjured, as was a toddler who was riding in the backseat. The toddler was in a booster seat, Francis said.

Troopers are investigating.

Traffic was jammed for about an hour.
