A 25-year-old man died this afternoon after being struck by a falling tree near Arlington.
A relative of the victim called for help around 3:45 p.m. after seeing a tree on top of a tent where the man had been living, said Snohomish County sheriff’s spokesman Shari Ireton. Authorities found the man dead inside the tent.
The tent was on property owned by the victim’s parents, Ireton said.
It’s unclear when the tree fell or whether the family heard it fall, said Ireton. She described the property, in the 12000 block of 158th Street Northeast, as rural.

UPDATE: 5:55 a.m. Tuesday | All lanes of Highway 2 were opened shortly after 3 a.m. today, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.
UPDATE: 10:45 p.m. | The driver killed in a four-car pileup that shut down Highway 2 on Monday night was a 55-year-old Skykomish man who led two Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies on a chase after being pulled over for investigation of driving under the influence, Everett police spokesman Aaron Snell said.
Authorities had received earlier calls for a DUI driver in the area when they pulled over the man, who sped off eastbound, Snell said. Around Milepost 34, the man veered into the westbound lane, where the vehicle glanced off a white pickup and came back into the eastbound lanes and hit the two deputies’ cars, Snell said. Both the deputies and the driver of the pickup, an 86-year-old Edmonds man, were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Snell said.
ORIGINAL POST | A four-car crash on Highway 2 near Index in Snohomish County killed one driver and left another injured Monday evening, Snohomish County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said. It was the second fatal crash on Highway 2 in a couple days.
Just before 7 p.m. today, two Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies were eastbound following a weaving vehicle they suspected of DUI when the driver crossed into incoming traffic, Ireton said. Details on the crash were limited, but the deputies’ cars were also involved, she said.
The injured driver is being treated at the scene, Ireton said, but the extent of the injuries isn’t known.
All lanes of Highway 2 are closed, and traffic are being detoured at Reiter Road, according to a news release from the state Department of Transportation. Drivers should consider an alternate route or expect long delays as it may take up to 6 hours to reopen, the release said.
On Saturday, a 22-year-old Federal Way man died and his pregnant passenger was critically injured in a collision with an oncoming truck after crossing over the median, the State Patrol said.

UPDATE: 7 p.m. | Duane “DJ” Sanders, the suspect who attacked a Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy and ran away while being handcuffed, has been caught, the sheriff’s department announced in a tweet.
Sanders’ parents drove him to jail, where sheriff’s deputies “eagerly greeted him,” the department said in a second tweet. He will be booked for investigation of third-degree assault and outstanding warrants.
ORIGINAL POST | A Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy was attacked by a man wanted on a warrant this morning south of Stanwood, the sheriff’s office said.
Duane “DJ” Sanders, 29, was being arrested around 9 a.m. in the 4400 block of 192nd Avenue Northwest when he struck the deputy in the face and hand as he was being handcuffed. Sanders then fled.
The deputy was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries, the sheriff’s office says. He has been with the sheriff’s office for more than 31 years.
According to the sheriff’s office, the deputy had responded to a call about a stolen F-250 Ford pickup found in the nearby woods. While waiting for a tow truck, Sanders and a 32-year-old Stanwood woman arrived at the scene, the sheriff’s office said.
It is not believed that Sanders or the woman had connection with the stolen pickup, the sheriff’s office said.
However, Sanders was found to have several outstanding warrants, including one for felony escape from the state Department of Corrections. The woman was taken into custody for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant, the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies are searching for Sanders north of Lake Goodwin.
He is 5-feet-4, about 130 pounds with facial hair and is missing his right eye. He also has a handcuff on his left wrist. Sanders was last seen wearing a dark fleece jacket and jeans.
Anyone who sees Sanders is asked to call 911.

A Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy shot a man in the hand this morning following a brief standoff near Lake Goodwin.
Deputies responded to the 4500 block of Lakewood Road just before 4 a.m. after receiving reports of an armed, suicidal man, said Aaron Snell, speaking on behalf of the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team. Snell said the man did not obey deputies’ commands and had access to weapons.
After a short standoff, a deputy shot the 36-year-old man in the hand around 5:30 a.m., although it wasn’t immediately clear what made the deputy open fire. It’s also unknown whether the man was armed when he was shot.
The man was initially taken to an Everett hospital and then transferred to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
The deputy who shot the man has been with the sheriff’s office for seven years. He will be placed on administrative leave per standard procedure pending an investigation, Snell said.
Additional details will be released once the response team investigates the shooting.
