Sammamish woman arrested after suspected DUI crash in Everett

EVERETT — A Sammamish woman was jailed Sunday evening after a suspected drunken-driving crash left a man with serious injuries.

The crash occurred when two cars collided at the intersection of SE Everett Mall Way and highways 526 and 527.

One of the vehicles ran a red light, according to Everett police.

A man driving one of the cars suffered a broken pelvis, a broken rib and internal injuries that required removal of portions of his intestines, police said. He was listed in critical condition at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett on Monday afternoon.

The driver of the other car, a woman, 21, was arrested for investigation of vehicular assault.

Witnesses said she ran a red light while traveling east on Highway 526 and slammed into a car headed south on SE Everett Mall Way.

She told officers otherwise; that the man crashed into her, the report said. Her car reportedly had front-end damage; the other car was struck in the rear.

The woman told officers that she’d consumed three mixed drinks at an area sports bar that afternoon.

An investigating officer said the woman smelled of alcohol and was confused. For example, while being questioned she was looking for her drivers license after already having provided it to officers, the report said.

“I noted (the woman) slurred some of her words as she spoke. Her eyes were droopy as well as bloodshot and watery,” the police report said.

The woman declined to submit to sobriety testing. Police obtained a search warrant for a blood draw. The case remains under investigation.
