Snohomish County deputy hits pedestrian in Lake Stevens

A Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy struck and injured a pedestrian early Saturday morning in Lake Stevens, the sheriff’s office said.

According to accident investigators, the deputy was on duty and driving on state Highway 92 near Callow Road just before 3 a.m. when he struck the 51-year-old Lake Stevens man. He is in serious condition at Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center.

The pedestrian was wearing dark clothing and had on headphones at the time of the accident, the sheriff’s office said. A second driver had reportedly called 911 around the same time and said he narrowly missed a pedestrian in dark clothing in the same area, according to the sheriff’s office.

The incident remains under investigation by the sheriff’s Collision Investigation Unit.

The deputy, who has been with the sheriff’s office for four years, has not been placed on administrative leave pending the results of the collision investigation, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
