Seattle’s KOMO News.com reports that the man was driving southbound on Everett’s Evergreen Way and was attempting to make a left turn into a parking lot in the 9000 block. According to the report, a Northbound Acura t-boned the man’s Toyota and he was killed at the scene.
The driver of the Acura and his female passenger were taken to Providence Hospital in Everett with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police believe the driver of the Acura may have been speeding at the time of the accident. Vehicle Code RCW 46.61.185 “Vehicle Turning Left” requires that a driver turning left yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction. In a case like this, degrees of fault may be determined after a report is made by the Washington State Patrol.
