Marysville-area car accident kills 4 when suspected DUI driver runs stop sign

The Seattle Times reports that four people were killed in a two-car accident on Sunday northeast of Marysville when a suspected drunken driver ran a stop sign.

The car accident occurred near the intersection of 108th Street Northeast and Highway 9. All four of the victims were traveling south on Highway 9 in a Hyundai when their car was hit by a Ford Explorer. Two of the victims reportedly died instantly.

The driver of the Explorer at first fled the accident scene but a woman living in the neighborhood persuaded him to return to the scene. He was transported to Providence Everett Regional medical center with minor injuries. He most likely will be charged with vehicular homicide if it turns out that he was driving under the influence at the time of the accident. His male passenger was treated for minor injuries.
