Updated: 3: 50 p.m.

Three pedestrians were killed Saturday night in separate incidents around the Puget Sound region.

In Seattle, a 50-year-old man died after being struck by a van at Alaskan Way and Wall Street, Seattle police said.

Fire Department personnel worked to revive the man, who was pronounced dead at Harborview Medical Center, according to Seattle Police.

The man was walking west, trying to cross the 2400 block of  Alaskan Way, police said. As he crossed in front of cars that had stopped for a train, he was hit in the center lane by a Dodge van that was passing a stopped vehicle.

Police are continuing to investigate, and said the van driver was identified and released at the scene.

In Everett, a man walking in the southbound lanes of Interstate 5 near the State Route 526/Everett Mall Way interchange was hit by three cars around 10 p.m., Washington State Patrol said.

The man, identified as Shane A. Archey, 40, of Everett, died at the scene.

The State Patrol had received reports around 9:30 p.m. of a man walking in and out of the southbound I-5 traffic lanes, Trooper Keith Leary said. However, troopers were unable to find anyone despite searching both directions of I-5.

Three lanes of southbound I-5 were blocked for about three hours by the incident, according to the state Department of Transportation.

In unincorporated Snohomish County near Mill Creek, a man was struck and killed on 164th Street SW east of the I-5 ramp, said Leslie Hynes, spokeswoman for Snohomish County Fire District 1.

The call came in about 9 p.m. Saturday, Hynes said, reporting that the man had been hit by a vehicle that then left the scene.

The unidentified man, who appeared to be in his 30s, was dead at the scene, she said.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the apparent hit-and-run.
