Motor home stolen in Everett crashes in Granite Falls; driver arrested

A man allegedly stole a motor home from south Everett and drove it on the Mountain Loop Highway before he crashed into a house and several vehicles in Granite Falls this evening, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

Everett police located the stolen motor home after someone reported seeing it in the south Everett area. Police followed the vehicle, which then drove on Highway 9.

Washington State Patrol troopers and sheriff’s office deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver continued north to Highway 92 toward Granite Falls, allegedly swerving at cars along the way.

Deputies believe the driver lost control of the motor home, left the roadway and hit a house and several cars between Quarry and Gun Club roads. A man who was in one of the cars was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries.

The driver, a 33-year-old man, fled on foot but was located in a nearby home and taken into custody around 6:40 p.m., the sheriff’s office said.
