Fatal collision involving pedestrian on I-5 in Everett blocks most lanes of southbound traffic

A fatal collision on Interstate 5 in Everett blocked most lanes of southbound traffic Sunday afternoon.

According to WSP Trooper Kelsey Harding, a pedestrian was killed when he was hit by a vehicle.

A man was putting gas into a van on the shoulder when a truck veered off the road and hit the side of the van and the victim, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The person in the truck stopped and came back to the crash scene. Troopers said there was no evidence that the driver was impaired.

According to WSDOT, southbound I-5 just south of State Route 529 was blocked.

WSDOT cameras from the scene showed multiple fire trucks, WSDOT trucks, and the Washington State Patrol, with drivers able to get by in the far left lane.

Sigalert showed the backup from the collision as far back as just north of State Route 528.

All lanes were back open shortly after 9 p.m.

The scene of this fatality collision was about ten miles from where Washington State Trooper Chris Gadd was struck and killed Saturday morning.
