SNOHOMISH — Detectives have closed their investigation into a fatal T-bone crash on Highway 9 in Snohomish on April 19.
The driver who allegedly caused the crash, a 47-year-old Snohomish woman, was cited for second-degree negligent driving. The offense is a traffic infraction with a possible fine of up to $250.
The woman allegedly ran a red light before her Audi collided with a Mitsubishi at the highway’s intersection with 56th Street SE.
Detectives were unable to determine why the woman ran the light, Snohomish County sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said Tuesday. The woman was not speeding and there was no evidence she was driving recklessly, Ireton said.
The Mitsubishi driver, 26-year-old Efren Gonzalez Salas, suffered fatal head injuries. He had addresses in Snohomish and Yakima counties.
