EVERETT — Police were investigating a possible hit and run death Saturday on Highway 529, south of Steamboat Slough.
Just before midnight on Friday, Everett police responded to reports of a man in the roadway in the southbound lanes, said officer Aaron Snell. An officer found the man laying on the ground with what appeared to be head trauma. Lifesaving attempts from the Marysville Fire District were unsuccessful, and he was declared dead at the scene.
Everett detectives with the Traffic Safety Unit are investigating. They believe the man is from Marysville and that he may have been in a mental crisis.
