Woman injured in wreck blamed on car thief

MILL CREEK — A 56-year-old Bothell woman suffered two broken ribs Saturday night when the car she was riding in was hit by a stolen vehicle. The woman, whose name was not released, was transported by aid car to Evergreen Medical Center in Kirkland for treatment.

About 9:35 p.m. Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies were called to a three-car accident on 164th Street SW and Manor Way, said Jan Jorgensen, sheriff’s spokeswoman.

The stolen vehicle, a 1994 Ford Ranger, was traveling west on Alderwood Mall Parkway at a high rate of speed when the driver apparently ran a red light at the intersection and struck a 1999 Toyota pick-up traveling west. The stolen pick-up spun around and struck a passenger car stopped at the intersection. Neither the driver of the Toyota nor the driver of the car were injured.

K-9 tracked the man. The 29-year-old Lynnwood man was apprehended, arrested and transported to the Snohomish County Jail, where he was booked for investigation of vehicular assault and felony hit-and-run.


Definitely not child’s play: A closet fire caused about $4,000 structural damage Saturday night to a house in the 3700 block of Hoyt Avenue. Everett Firefighters were called to the scene about 10 p.m. Firefighters determined the fire had been caused when a child playing with matches ignited some toilet paper. Two firefighters suffered minor injuries. One firefighter was cut by glass; the second, by a nail.


Meth lab found: Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Marysville-area man Friday night after finding a methamphetamine lab, a marijuana growing operation and a stolen car at his house.

The deputies went to the 2300 block of 140th St. NE to serve an outstanding arrest warrant for forgery.

That was part of a countywide effort to serve warrants on habitual criminals. About a dozen of 30 or 40 people were found and arrested, said Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Jan Jorgensen.

The deputies discovered the methamphetamine lab and the marijuana growing at the man’s house while serving the warrant. They’ve turned the investigation over to the Snohomish Regional Drug Task Force.

The street value of the drugs in the house were unavailable Saturday night.

The man was booked into the Snohomish County jail on the forgery warrant and under investigation of drug charges, Jorgensen said.
