1 Dead in Bothell Multi-Vehicle Accident on Interstate 405 and Bothell Everett Highway
BOTHELL, WA (January 18, 2023) – Tuesday morning, a 41-year-old man died in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 405 and Bothell Everett Highway.
The incident occurred at 4:25 a.m. on the southbound Interstate 405, before Bothell Everett Highway.
According to reports, a Kia hit the barrier on the right side of the highway. Then, it bounced back into traffic and got struck by two cars.
Then, as the driver of the Kia got out of his car, a semi-truck hit him, said WSP Sgt. Rocky Oliphant.
As a result, the 41-year-old man succumbed to injuries at the scene.
“It sounds like he was (in) the road (after the crash). I don’t know if he was disoriented or what his mindset was at the time. We’re not understanding why he was (in) the road,” added Oliphant.
“There are six vehicles involved with this collision scene. It’s a very long scene — it’s about 1,500 feet long, so there’s evidence in the road that we have to capture,” stated Oliphant.
“Everybody at the scene has been cooperative with us, there is no suspected impairment involved,” said Oliphant.
Meanwhile, the closure led to major backups for drivers.
Moreover, the crash shut down the southbound lanes for about six hours.
Also, officers diverted the traffic onto southbound Interstate 5 during the closure.
We want to send our sincere sympathies to the bereaved family and friends of the victims of the crash on Interstate 405 and Bothell Everett Highway.
