The Washington State Patrol has issued a $1 million warrant for the arrest of a Mount Vernon man in connection with a crash that killed three people on Highway 20 near Sedro-Woolley on May 23.
The State Patrol is looking for Alfredo Navarro Jr. III, who has been identified as a suspect in three counts of vehicular homicide. Officials believe he left Harborview Medical Center without their knowledge, even thought he has a broken arm and leg.
Around 5 a.m. on May 23, a 1998 Audi A4, allegedly driven by Navarro, crossed the center line on Highway 20 at Minkler Road and crashed into a 2006 Ford Fusion driven by Frederick A. Brand, 65, of Concrete.
Brand and two passengers in the Audi, Megan L. Brown, 21, of Bellingham and Nicole A. Washington, 23, of Sedro-Woolley, were killed. Navarro and passenger Quinnton A. Baxter, 22, of Bellingham, were injured.
