Request for additional witnesses
The Washington State Patrol’s Major Accident Investigation Team is investigating the one-car serious injury collision from early last Saturday north of Lynnwood on I-5.
A state trooper attempted to stop a vehicle on northbound I-5 near the Swamp Creek interchange.
The driver sped away in an attempt to elude, and just south of 164th Street SW the car, a yellow 2001 BMW M3, left the northbound lanes to the right at a high rate of speed.
It traveled up and over an embankment and crashed down onto the Interurban trail.
During this path of travel, the driver was ejected from the car and sustained severe injuries.
Detectives are interested in talking to anyone with knowledge of this vehicle before the incident began or during the short pursuit and crash.
If you saw or heard anything, or know someone who has information, you are asked to call Detective Sergeant Jerry Cooper at (360) 805-1192 or Detective Dan Comnick at (360) 805-1160.
