One person is dead after a three-car crash Friday afternoon on northbound Interstate 5 in Everett.
The driver of the car that caused the crash is believed to have had a some sort of medical episode near the Highway 2 on-ramp, according to the Washington State Patrol. The State Patrol initially reported that the crash was a hit-and-run.
The right two lanes of northbound I-5 and the on-ramps from Highway 2 and Everett Avenue were blocked, according to the state Department of Transportation. Drivers planning to take the Highway 2 trestle to northbound I-5 were advised to take Highway 9 instead.
