Woman dies following collision with stolen pickup in Everett

A woman who was injured when her car was struck Sunday night by a stolen pickup in Everett has died, according to Everett police.

The woman, a 40-year-old from Mukilteo, died overnight at Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center. The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine her identity as well as the cause and manner of death, police said.

The woman was critically injured while police were pursuing a pickup reported stolen late Sunday night in Bothell. The driver of the pickup drove north on Interstate 5 into Everett and struck the woman’s car at the intersection of Rucker and Pacific avenues. The woman’s car then hit a natural gas line that caught fire, police said.

Everett police and firefighters moved the car to rescue the woman.

Police say the driver of the pickup, a 33-year-old Seattle man, was taken to an Everett hospital with less-serious injuries.

Everett police say they will book the man into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first-degree murder.
