A man walking on Highway 526 in Everett was killed this morning when he was struck by a vehicle.
According to Everett police, the man is believed to have been walking away from his vehicle, which had spun out on a patch of ice, when he was struck by a woman driving a sport utility vehicle around 5 a.m. The eastbound lanes of the highway, also known as the Boeing Freeway, were shut down after the collision until 7:20 a.m.
“We’re not exactly sure why the pedestrian was in the roadway. We are looking into the possibility of a single-vehicle spinout at the same location with a vehicle that ended up in the grassy median,” said police spokesman Sgt. Robert Goetz.
Police did not release the name of the man killed. The collision occurred near Seaway Boulevard.
