Herald staff

SNOHOMISH — Five people were hurt in a two-car crash on Highway 9 at Bickford Avenue Sunday afternoon.

A 2000 Jeep Cherokee pulled onto Highway 9 from Avenue D without yielding and was hit by a northbound 1992 Ford Explorer driven by a 42-year-old Lake Stevens man, the State Patrol reported.

The Jeep was totaled and the driver, a 39-year-old Redmond man, was taken to Providence Everett Medical Center’s Colby Campus with internal injuries. Four female passengers, all Redmond residents, were taken to the hospital with neck pains. Two of the passengers were teen-agers.

The Lake Stevens man was not hurt. His vehicle sustained $6,000 in damage, according to the State Patrol.

  • Standoff ends peacefully: A 57-year-old man barricaded himself inside a camping trailer with a shotgun near Kodiak Avenue late Sunday afternoon, but he surrendered to police without incident after a two-hour standoff.

    The neighborhood was not evacuated during the incident, said Jan Smith, spokeswoman for the Island County Sheriff’s Office.

    The man’s wife called police shortly after the couple argued at 4 p.m. and the man made a vague threat, Smith said.

    When police arrived, the man’s wife and four other family members were a safe distance away in a nearby home.

    "He came out of the camp trailer in a confrontation manner," Smith said. "There began a series of negotiations, and it was all resolved without incident in a period of two hours."

    "They took him into custody without incident. He was transported to Whidbey Island where he will be examined for a mental health evaluation, pending arrest for domestic violence," Smith said.
