Pedestrian dies after hit-and-run in Marysville

MARYSVILLE — A 52-year-old man died hours after he was struck by a vehicle Thursday morning in Marysville.

Police are asking for help finding the driver.

The Marysville man was crossing the street near the northbound ramp to I-5 and Fourth Street. He was likely struck while in the crosswalk, Marysville police Cmdr. Mark Thomas said.

Police received calls about a man down in the roadway around 4:30 a.m.

The vehicle was gone when paramedics arrived to treat the victim.

A crew from the Marysville Fire District performed CPR on the man. He was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett where he later died from his injuries, Thomas said.

The onramp was closed for more than two hours during heavy morning commuter traffic while detectives investigated the crash scene.

Police had no immediate information about the driver or the vehicle that was involved.

“Often times these tragic accidents are just that, accidents. They are compounded when the driver panics and begins to make very poor decisions,” Thomas said. “I would encourage the driver of the vehicle to turn themselves in sooner than later.”

Police ask that anyone who was in the area between 4:15 and 4:30 a.m. or has information about the suspect vehicle to contact investigators. They can be reached at 360-363-8350.
