Accident fatality: A three-vehicle collision that included an airport shuttle van on Highway 525 Wednesday killed a Bothell man and severely injured an Oak Harbor woman.

A 1971 Ford pickup collided with a 2000 Dodge airport shuttle van and a 1990 Ford box van at about 1:10 a.m., according to the Washington State Patrol. There were three people on the shuttle van, including the driver.

The driver of the pickup, 26-year-old Nickolas N. Mount, died at the scene, the patrol said.

Shanita Williams, 26, a passenger on the shuttle, was in serious condition Thursday and being treated for two fractured hips and a neck injury, said a spokeswoman at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Three others were injured in the crash: Samuel J. Magaw, 58, of Kenmore, the shuttle driver, who was treated and released from Providence Everett Medical Center; Roger L. Fletch, 52, of Seattle, the third driver, who was treated at the scene; and John E. Salter, 31, of Oak Harbor, who was treated and released from Harborview.


One killed, one injured: One woman died and another was injured in a head-on crash shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday on Casino Road near a Fred Meyer store.

The collision between a sport utility vehicle and a compact car occurred in the center turn lane, Everett police Sgt. Boyd Bryant said.

One of the women died at Providence Everett Medical Center’s Colby Campus, and the other woman, who suffered leg injuries, was listed in stable condition, a nursing supervisor said.

An investigation of the incident is continuing.


Sign shooting: It’s bad to take potshots at traffic signs.

It’s really dumb to do it when a Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy is nearby.

A 27-year-old Arlington man was charged Thursday with second-degree malicious mischief for allegedly firing shots from a .44-caliber pistol at a stop sign at the intersection of Fortson Mill Road and Highway 530 west of Darrington.

According to charging papers, the man was riding with a friend at 10 p.m. on Jan. 17. They were stopped at the intersection when the man shot at the sign, putting large holes in it.

Deputy prosecutor Mark Roe said there was light traffic at the time. The sheriff’s deputy was nearly at the intersection when he heard the shots.

He added that the charge may be upgraded to drive-by shooting by the time the case comes to trial.
