WSP: Man jumps out of SUV causing 3-car crash; teen suspected of DUI
SNOHOMISH COUNTY — Two people were hurt in a bizarre crash that troopers say was caused by a man jumping out of an SUV near Marysville.
Troopers say a 16-year-old girl was driving a Chevy Tahoe with about ten people inside around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. They say the passenger, a 27-year-old man, jumped out of the SUV on State Route 9. That caused two other cars to swerve — resulting in a three-car crash.
The 27-year-old man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where he is listed in critical condition.
A passenger in a Chevy Blazer was also hurt. The 66-year-old woman was treated at Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington.
Troopers say the 16-year-old driver is suspected of driving while high on marijuana. She could face numerous counts of reckless endangerment because of the number of people inside the SUV.
