EVERETT, Wash. -- Everett police are investigating an automobile-pedestrian accident on State Route 526  that has left one person dead.

The crash happened around 5 a.m. on the eastbound lanes of SR 526 near Seaway Boulevard, near the south end of the Boeing plant.

A 56-year-old Mukilteo woman was traveling eastbound on SR526 when her vehicle struck a man walking on the roadway, according to the Everett Police Department. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

It's unclear why the man was in the road at the time. Investigators are looking into the possibility the man had just been involved in a vehicle spin-out collision on the ramp from Seaway Blvd. to eastbound SR526 that left a Toyotoa Corolla in the grassy median between the roadways.

There was no early indication alcohol or drug were involved in this crash. It also appears that the car/pedestrian collision was not weather (ice) related.

The single vehicle spin-out however, may have been due to ice or slick roadways based upon the position of the car when it came to a stop. Eastbound SR526 was closed for about 2 ½ hours while police conducted their investigation. During that time traffic was diverted onto city surface streets.
