A Snohomish County sheriff’s motorcycle deputy has been injured in a traffic accident in south Everett.
The deputy and the driver of a car, a 33-year-old Everett man, were both taken to Providence Medical Center Everett, said police spokesman Officer Aaron Snell. The Sheriff’s Office said both suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
The accident happened about 10:30 a.m. in northbound lane of Evergreen Way, just north of 112th Street Southwest, Snell said.
“We’re still sorting everything out,” he said just before 11 a.m., adding that investigators are still trying to determine exactly what happened. “It’s literally still fresh. Just a little while ago we were able to secure the scene.”
The deputy, 48, is a 10-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office, according to Snell.
