Troopers investigating fatal crash in Marysville involving ‘unique situation’

MARYSVILLE, Wash. — One person was killed in a rollover crash on a southbound Interstate 5 offramp in Marysville.

It happened at around 2:30 a.m. Friday on the offramp to State Route 528. The ramp was closed during the investigation but reopened at around 9 a.m.

Initially, troopers did not give us details about what led up to the crash and called it a “unique situation.”

Later, WSP told us that troopers had received a request to use spike strips and help with a pursuit, but when they arrived in the area, there had been a crash.

It was extremely foggy in the area when our news crew arrived at the scene, so much so, that it was difficult to see the mangled car on its side up an embankment. It appears that only one car was involved.

In the darkness, investigators set up portable lights so they could take photos and search for evidence.

Once it was daylight, a drone was used to map out the crash scene.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation along with Marysville Police.
