The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office has completed its review of the fatal accident that took the life of a 7-year old Everett boy Tuesday evening and has identified him as Josiah A. Alves. The boy died from blunt force injuries to the head.
The driver of the black BMW involved in the crash, a 30-year old Everett man, is the boy’s legal guardian. He has been treated for his injuries and released from the hospital.
The driver of the minivan involved in the crash is a 75-year old Marysville woman; her condition is unknown. She was treated for non-life threatening injuries at Providence Regional Medical Center’s Colby Campus in Everett, according to Aaron Snell, community information officer for the Everett Police Department.
No charges have been filed in connection with the collision, which is still under investigation.
Witnesses said the BMW was being driven fast and erratically on Evergreen Way, Snell said. The BMW clipped another southbound vehicle in the 7800 block, then collided with a northbound minivan around 6 p.m. Tuesday.
