SNOHOMISH COUNTY, WA (March 3, 2018) – Around 12:20 PM on Saturday afternoon, a man was severely injured in a hit-and-run accident occurred on State Route 9 near the junction with State Route 96 (Lowell Larimar Road).
The young man was identified as 21-year-old Michael J Lux of Lynwood, Washington. First emergency responders arrived at the scene of the accident to find a tan 1994 Toyota Camry in a ditch on the side of eastbound SR 9, facing westbound and crashed into a tree.
Lux suffered critical injuries and was transported to the Providence Hospital in Everett for medical treatment. There is no update on his current condition, and no other injuries have been reported at this time. A witness stated that Lux’s Camry was passing a silver car that was also traveling westbound, when the two vehicles collided.
