MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — A 38-year-old Bothell driver died Thursday on I-5 during the afternoon commute when he apparently suffered an unknown medical problem, the Washington State Patrol said.
Vitaliy Asriyev was driving northbound in a Volkswagen Jetta just north of the 220th Street SW exit at about 5:25 p.m. when his car hit an SUV from behind in the carpool lane, the patrol said. Asriyev was dead at the scene. A passenger in his car, a 30-year-old Everett woman, was not injured.
The other vehicle was a Chevrolet Tahoe, driven by another 30-year-old Everett woman. Neither she nor her 1-year-old male passenger was hurt.
