Detectives seek witnesses to vehicular assault in Marysville

MARYSVILLE — Detectives are seeking help from people who might have witnessed a suspected vehicular assault early Monday morning in Marysville.

A gray Honda Accord was northbound on I-5 at about 1:30 a.m. It swerved, crashed into a concrete barrier and rolled several times, according to a probable cause affidavit. The car came to a stop in the left lane near the exit for 88th Street NE.

The driver was arrested on suspicion of vehicular assault.

A passing Washington State Patrol trooper saw the rollover. He found the driver, a 41-year-old Everett man, standing near the passenger side door. A woman inside suffered serious injuries.

When the trooper asked the driver what happened, he noticed the man’s eyes were bloodshot. The man refused to take a sobriety test, according to court papers.

The trooper helped the man walk to the patrol car. He couldn’t stand straight on his own, the trooper wrote in the affidavit.

At the time, the driver did not have a valid license. He also has two prior DUIs.

Anyone who witnessed the collision, or the events leading up to or after the wreck, is asked to contact detective Kevin Nelson at 360-654-1143 or
