Police seek witnesses in crash that killed Stanwood woman

ARLINGTON — Detectives are continuing to investigate a Sunday crash that killed an 18-year-old Stanwood woman near Arlington.

Investigators with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Collision Investigation Unit hope to talk with anyone who might have witnessed the one-vehicle accident that occurred around 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

The young woman was a passenger in a black Lexus that was traveling on 240th Street NE at a high rate of speed. The car left the roadway and rolled over between 123rd Avenue NE and 131st Avenue NE, sheriff’s office spokeswoman Shari Ireton said.

Anyone else with information about the accident is asked to call the sheriff’s office anonymous tip line at 425-388-3845.
