Pickup strikes, kills pedestrian south of Everett

EVERETT — A pedestrian died Friday morning after being struck by a pickup truck near Highway 99 and Admiralty Way on Airport Road, south of Everett, officials said.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office was on the scene for several hours investigating the fatal accident and controlling traffic. The road was closed until about 9:30 a.m.

The pedestrian is male, but his age was not immediately available.

The accident was reported around 6 a.m.

Identification, as well as cause and manner of death, will be determined by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The pedestrian died before deputies arrived, Ireton said.
