LAKE STEVENS — A 25-year-old Snohomish man died Saturday night after the car he was riding in went off a road east of Lake Stevens, hit a telephone pole and a tree, and caught on fire, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Douglas D. Rogers died at the scene from head injuries. He was the passenger in a Toyota pickup that failed to negotiate a curve on Newberg Road about 10:20 p.m., according to the police report.
The driver, Andrew M. Pruett, suffered a broken leg, and head and abdominal injuries, and was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, according to police. He was listed in serious condition Sunday evening.
Jose Sanchez-Villagomez died at the scene after the car went off 34th Ave. NE at a curve near the intersection with 116th St. NE, shortly after midnight Saturday, according to the police report.
A 24-year old passenger, Mario Diaz-Romero, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with internal and head injuries, and was listed in serious condition Sunday night.
Three other men were treated at the Providence Everett Medical Center’s Colby Campus and were released.
The fire on the 20900 block of Larch Way broke out in the basement of a two-story house, and was reported about 4:30 p.m., said Lt. Glen Webster of the Lynnwood Fire Department. No one was injured, but a number of pets were killed, Webster said.
Five engine companies from the Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace and Fire District 1 departments battled the blaze, which was "knocked down" after 30 minutes, Webster said.
The house, he said, was still standing but was a total loss. He did not know what started the fire.
The Snohomish County fire marshal is investigating.
