A head-on collision in Arlington Thursday afternoon left one person dead and two people injured, according to a city spokeswoman.

The driver of a northbound car died after crossing Highway 9’s center line north of Crown Ridge Boulevard and hitting a southbound vehicle carrying two adult women and two children at about 3:09 p.m., according to City of Arlington spokeswoman Kristin Banfield.

Emergency personnel were not able to save the northbound driver’s life before extricating him from his car. They were able to cut two adult women with serious injuries out of the other car and send them to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. The two children were sent to the same hospital for precautionary measures.

Both directions of Highway 9 were shut down near the crash site for investigation.

The hometowns and ages of those involved in the crashes have not been released yet.

 

 

 

The City of Arlington is hosting a meeting at Arlington High School, which is near the accident scene. We are asking attendees of the meeting to get to the High School through the Gleneagle neighborhood, since access from North and South Highway 9 is restricted for the fatality investigation.
