Woman struck, killed by car on Highway 99 is identified as Everett woman

A 55-year-old Everett woman was struck and killed Saturday night when she attempted to cross Highway 99 just south of 128th Street SW.

The Washington State Patrol identified the woman as Angela Hernandez. The accident occurred about 9:50 p.m. at a spot where there was no pedestrian crossing, Washington State Patrol trooper Keith Leary said.

“It sounds like she just walked out in front of him,” Leary said. The driver, a 22-year-old Everett man, was in a northbound lane when his car struck the woman, according to a State Patrol report.

“He couldn’t get stopped in time. It could have happened to you or I. It was simply the pedestrian’s fault.”

The woman was crossing the road from west to east. It was raining lightly at the time and the woman was wearing dark clothing, Leary said.

Neither the driver nor two other passengers in the car, a 27-year-old woman and a 3-year-old boy, were injured.

No charges have been filed against the driver.
