Pedestrian killed on I-5 in Everett

The Seattle Times reports that a young woman was struck and killed while attempting to cross Interstate 5 near the Everett mall on Sunday Night. The report said that the woman was perhaps between 19 and 25 years of age. She was killed around 8:30 at I-5 near State Route 526. She was hit by one vehicle and then run over by another.

This is the second pedestrian accident death on the I-5 within the month. Last week, a Fort Lewis soldier was killed as he attempted to cross the I-5 near Fort Lewis.

We all know that no pedestrians are permitted on Interstate Highways and the death of these two young people is a tragedy, not only for the victim but for the motorists who accidentally hit them.
