1 killed, 1 injured in crash east of Arlington

There was no detour for several hours Thursday afternoon as detectives investigated the four-vehicle collision.

OSO — One man died and another was injured in a crash that closed Highway 530 on Thursday afternoon.

At 12:40 p.m., Washington State Patrol reported a head-on crash involving four cars near 139th Avenue NE, about 5 miles east of Arlington, said trooper Kelsey Harding.

A Darrington man, 37, had been eastbound “at a high rate” of speed in a 2003 Chevy Cavalier, when he crashed into the back of a Jeep that was stopped for a left turn, according to the state patrol. The Chevy then crossed into a westbound lane and struck a Ford F-350 head-on, causing the Ford to roll multiple times.

The Chevy driver died at Cascade Valley Hospital, troopers said.

The driver of the Ford, a Marysville man, 49, was injured. He was being treated at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.

A second Jeep had been westbound approaching the crash scene. That vehicle crossed over eastbound lanes and struck a tree.

The two Jeep drivers did not suffer serious injuries, troopers said.

The road was blocked, with no detour, as detectives investigated the crash. The exact cause remained undetermined as of Thursday evening.

Meanwhile, the road reopened around 3 p.m.
