Fatal wreck closes Highway 2 in Snohomish County

UPDATE AT 3:06 P.M.: The accident has been cleared and traffic is moving in both directions, according to the State Patrol.

UPDATE AT 2:15 P.M.: KING-TV reports traffic is moving in alternating directions.

Highway 2 near Index is expected to be closed for several hours following a fatal two-vehicle collision, the State Patrol said.

Both directions of the highway will be closed as troopers investigate the crash, the second fatal accident on Highway 2 in Snohomish County in the past two days.

Friday’s crash happened around 11 a.m. just east of Index. State Patrol spokesman Trooper Keith Leary said the driver who was killed crossed the center line while on a curve and hit a vehicle coming the opposite direction, according to Times news partner KING-TV.
