Woman seriously injured after stolen truck crashes

Everett — Detectives are investigating a serious injury collision after a stolen truck crashed into another vehicle late Sunday night.

A police pursuit began after Bothell officers tried to stop a stolen pickup truck in the 1800 block of 164th Street SE where it collided with a vehicle before backing into a police car, Everett police officer Aaron Snell said.

The pickup sped north on I-5 and got off the freeway at Everett Mall Way. It then drove on Evergreen Way and Rucker Avenue until it hit a car at the intersection of Rucker and Pacific Avenue.

The pickup flipped upside down and slid onto the sidewalk, Snell said.

The car that was hit ended up on its side. The woman driving that car was trapped. Firefighters had to remove her from the car.

The driver of the pickup was arrested at the scene. The suspect, 33, sustained injuries that weren’t believed to be life threatening. He was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett for a medical evaluation. It is anticipated he will be booked for investigation of multiple felonies, Snell said.

The injured Mukileto woman, 40, was not so fortunate. She suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Both vehicles were impounded as evidence. Puget Sound Energy responded to repair damaged natural gas lines.
