MARYSVILLE — An elderly woman died when she was hit in a crosswalk early Monday in Monroe.
Around 6:50 a.m., the woman, 82, was crossing U.S. 2 northbound near North Kelsey Street when a vehicle headed west crashed into her, according to Monroe police.
The driver remained at the scene and was “fully cooperating with the investigation,” Monroe police Cmdr. Paul Ryan wrote.
The highway and surrounding roads closed for about three hours, while Monroe police and the Washington State Patrol investigated.
The identity of the deceased will be determined by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.
