EVERETT — A Snohomish County man has died after being struck by a car in Everett last week.
Vernon “Randy” Randall, 56, died from his injuries at a Seattle hospital, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
His death remains under investigation by Everett police.
Randall was struck by a Jeep at about 7:05 p.m. March 23 on Pacific Avenue near the intersection with Fulton Street, Everett police Sgt. Ryan Dalberg said.
It appears that Randall stumbled or fell into the street, and the Jeep’s driver didn’t have time to react, Dalberg said.
The investigation is expected to take at least another a month.
Randall’s friends and family described him as an upbeat man with a good character. He was known for always helping others, they said.
Randall most recently lived in the Everett area and on the Tulalip Indian Reservation, said his friend and former pastor, Dee Schlecht. Randall was a member of the Rosebud Sioux tribe.
Randall worked odd jobs, including yard work, construction and sales, Schlecht said.
“He was just a peaceful, quiet soul that was friendly, never had a temper, never hurt anybody,” Schlecht said.
