Lakewood wreck sends woman to Harborview

Herald staff

LAKEWOOD — A 38-year-old Snohomish County woman was listed in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after a two-vehicle collision about 5:15 a.m. Wednesday at Lakewood Road and W. Lake Goodwin Road, Snohomish County sheriff’s spokeswoman Jan Jorgensen said.

The woman was driving a Honda station wagon northbound on Lake Goodwin Road and collided with an eastbound Jeep Wrangler on Lakewood Road, Jorgensen said.

The 38-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman in the Jeep were ejected. They were taken to Providence Everett Medical Center’s Colby Campus, where they were treated and released.

The crash closed Lakewood Road for nearly an hour before one lane reopened, Jorgensen said.

Charges are pending.

  • Body identified: An Edmonds man found dead behind a motel garbage bin has been identified as Gilbert Pena, 46.

    Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad personnel discovered his body Tuesday morning.

    The cause of death is pending toxicology tests, but it is not considered suspicious, Edmonds Police Sgt. Jerry Gannon said Wednesday.

  • Road-tax hearing: The public will get a chance to comment on a plan to increase the road-tax portion of Snohomish County’s property tax on Dec. 20 at 10:30 a.m on the sixth floor of the county’s administration building.

    The Snohomish County Council on Wednesday set that time for a public hearing about a proposal by County Executive Bob Drewel to raise the tax by 6 percent in 2001.

    Drewel on Tuesday vetoed the council’s budget plan to raise the tax by 2 percent, warning it would deny the county millions of dollars in funding for crucial road projects.

    The council could have had held a vote over whether to overturn Drewel’s veto, but instead scheduled the meeting about his counterproposal.

    The hearing comes amid legal wrangling over Initiative 722. The voter-approved ballot measure would cap property tax increases at 2 percent per year. But it has been tied up in court, and state and county tax officials have said they won’t implement the initiative while the injunction is in place.

    The administration building is at 3000 Rockefeller Ave. in Everett.

  • Jumping in early: Former Mukilteo Mayor Brian Sullivan apparently wants to get an early jump on any potential competitors.

    He announced Wednesday that he plans to run for the 21st Legislative District seat being vacated by state Rep. Renee Radcliff, R-Mukilteo.

    The special election won’t be until November 2001. The GOP hasn’t even named a replacement for Radcliff to serve until the election.

    Sullivan, a lifelong Democrat, said his top issues are transportation, education and tax reform.

    "Politics and public service are in my blood," Sullivan said in a news release. "I enjoy the challenges of finding win-win solutions that benefit all parties."
