Passenger critically injured Wednesday in Highway 99 crash

A northbound driver was passing on the right shoulder and rammed into a car turning left, south of Everett.

EVERETT — One person was critically injured and two others were hospitalized Wednesday evening after a two-car crash south of Everett on Highway 99.

An Everett woman, 20, in a white Mazda CX-9 was passing another car at full speed on the right shoulder near the intersection of Gibson Road, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Around 5:10 p.m., her car crashed into the passenger-side door of a blue Volkswagen Jetta that was turning left out of a southbound turn lane, state trooper Rocky Oliphant said.

A passenger in the Jetta, 21, of Snohomish, was critically injured and taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The two drivers suffered less-serious injuries, Oliphant said. The Jetta driver, 33, was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett, while the Mazda driver was taken to Swedish Edmonds.

Both people in the Jetta wore seatbelts.

The crash was determined to be the fault of the Mazda driver, Oliphant said. She was not suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. She had not been arrested or charged with a crime as of Thursday.
