No arrests after pedestrian struck, killed by car in Everett

It was dark and rainy when Vadim Pikovets crossed Evergreen Way. Police were still investigating Tuesday.

EVERETT — An Everett man who died after being struck by a vehicle on Evergreen Way has been identified.

Vadim Pikovets, 54, was walking in the 9600 block of Evergreen Way just before 7 p.m. on Nov. 18, Everett Police officer Aaron Snell said. The Everett man was crossing the road when a southbound vehicle struck him.

Pikovets was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett, where he died of his injuries.

Police do not believe Pikovets was walking in a crosswalk when he was struck. The driver who hit him stayed at the scene and cooperated with police, Snell said. An investigation was ongoing.

As of Tuesday afternoon, no arrests had been made. It did not appear drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash, Snell said.

“It was a rainy night, it was dark and he was wearing darker clothing,” Snell said. “The outcome of the investigation will determine who was at fault.”

The cause of death was blunt-force injuries, and the manner of death was an accident, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed Tuesday.

Family members of Pikovets set up an online fundraiser to help cover funeral costs.

“Vadim was a wonderful husband, son, brother, friend who touched the lives of those around him,” wrote a family member. “He leaves behind his loving family and relatives. We are all devastated by Vadim’s tragic loss and were not prepared for the high cost of a funeral service. We want to give Vadim the memorial he deserves, to honor his memory and say our last goodbyes.”
