Stanwood crash victim identified as Everett man, 20

SEATTLE — An Everett man who died after a car accident near Stanwood last month has been identified as Michael Allen Wright Jr., 20.

Wright died at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle two days after the July 17 crash, officials said Monday. His death was ruled an accident.

The two-vehicle head-on crash happened about 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of Marine Drive and Thomle Road, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
