One more person has died and three others are recovering in the hospital from a rash of weekend accidents in Snohomish County that have claimed five lives.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office performed autopsies Monday on a mother and her daughter who were killed late Friday night when the sport utility vehicle they were riding in collided with a subcompact car on Evergreen Way in Everett and then slammed into the side of a Blockbuster video store.
Margot Williamson, 48, and her daughter, 21-year-old Bianca Escobedo, both died of head injuries suffered in the crash. Then on Sunday night, 47-year-old Rebecca Howard of Everett, who had been in the vehicle with them and had been taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, succumbed to her head and chest injuries and died at 6 p.m., according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The two men who had also been in the vehicle were still being treated at Harborview. A 24-year-old was in satisfactory condition Monday night, and a 23-year-old was in serious condition in the trauma unit but had begun responding, according to the hospital.
The two people who had been in the subcompact car were not injured.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office also released the name Monday of an Edmonds man who was killed when a 75-foot tree fell onto his car as he was driving down Broadway Avenue in Snohomish on Saturday afternoon. David Olsen, 53, died of head injuries.
And an Edmonds woman was in satisfactory condition Monday night at Providence Everett Medical Center’s Colby campus after a six-vehicle pileup in Lynnwood on Sunday evening.
Elaine Kramer, 79, had been a passenger in a car that was totaled after another car crashed into it, causing a chain reaction with four cars and two trucks that were all northbound on Highway 99 near 148th Street SW at 5 p.m. Sunday. Three others were treated at Providence and released, and three were treated at the scene. Two people were not injured.
The investigation continued Monday into Friday’s hit-and-run accident in downtown Everett that killed 23-year-old naval officer Carrie Shoemaker. She was an electronic warfare officer on the San Diego-based USS Milius, an Arleigh Burke destroyer that has been in and out of port in Everett for the past few weeks.
Shoemaker’s family arrived Monday for a private memorial service at Naval Station Everett this afternoon.
