MARYSVILLE — A 42-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman from Marysville were killed and one person was seriously injured in a head-on crash on State Route 9  Friday near Marysville.

The Washington State Patrol said a Ford Explorer driven by Calvin Marlor Jr., 62, of Lake Stevens, was northbound on SR 9, about 1 mile north of 84th Street NE, when it struck the right guardrail for an unknown reason, crossed the center line and struck an oncoming car.

The occupants of the car were killed. They were identified as Adam Huzar, 42, and Agnieszka Huzar, 38, both of Marysville.

Washington State Patrol Trooper Mark Francis tweeted later that neither alcohol nor drug  impairment was not believed to be a factor in the crash.

The cause is still under investigation.

    Am I the only one disgusted that a Washington State Patrol Trooper is taking time to Tweet instead of focusing on getting to the accident ASAP and taking care of the victims and the scene?? WTF? Getting a big following and being re-tweeted on social media is NOT what the citizens of Washington are paying him to do while on duty. We’re also the ones who will have to pay dearly if Trooper Mark Francis gets into an accident while driving and texting.

      Please, read the article first. It says he tweeted LATER (aka after the crash) that neither alcohol or drugs were believed to be involved. Second of all, it doesn’t take every trooper to respond to every accident. Even if someone did tweet anything about it before the accident, I can almost guarantee it’s because they only needed a some to respond and others to stay behind in case of other calls or emergencies. Please read the article and stop looking for things to complain about.

      Not a bit. I just think that a WSP trooper should be concentrating on his job which does NOT include being a social media mouthpiece especially when driving to a serious accident. And if he tweeted before driving, then I think his priorities are a little screwed.

        Actually it is his job. He’s the Public Information Officer for that district. So you should know what you’re talking about. He is doing what he’s paid to do, tweet information to the public. Nice try though.

    Please explain to me Q13, how this sentence makes sense to you?: “Washington State Patrol Trooper Mark Francis tweeted later that neither alcohol nor drug impairment was NOT believed to be a factor in the crash.”
