Woman dies after Monday crash near Lake Stevens

She was a passenger in a car that was rear-ended into oncoming traffic, causing a head-on collision.

LAKE STEVENS — A woman has died after a three-car collision north of Lake Stevens on the afternoon of New Year’s Eve, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

A man driving a van rear-ended a Toyota Yaris around 2 p.m. near 84th Street NE and 105th Avenue NE. The Toyota was pushed into oncoming traffic, causing a head-on collision with an Acura SUV.

Two women in the Toyota were transported to a hospital. The passenger, 72, of Lake Stevens, died shortly after arriving. Her identity will be released by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The man driving the Acura SUV ran from the scene, according to the sheriff’s office. Deputies later found him at a hospital, seeking treatment for injuries. He was arrested for two warrants that aren’t related to the crash.

The van driver, 43, stayed at the scene and cooperated with deputies.

The exact cause of the crash was still being investigated as of Wednesday.
