Fatal vehicle crash discovered by concerned citizen on Burn Road

ARLINGTON — At approximately 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10, Arlington Police Officers were dispatched to a single vehicle crash that was discovered by a concerned motorist, who observed tire tracks leading off Burn Road, became concerned, and found that a vehicle was overturned in a ravine adjacent to the 20300 block of Burn Road.

Two occupants of the vehicle were ejected in the crash. A 20-year-old Arlington man suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries, and was transported by Arlington Fire personnel to the Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett for treatment. A 25-year-old Arlington man suffered life-threatening injuries from the crash, and was transported by Arlington Fire personnel to Cascade Valley Hospital, where he later died.

Detectives from the Arlington Police Department and the Washington State Patrol responded to process the complex scene, which required Burn Road to remain closed from 196th Street NE to 207th Street NE for approximately six hours. Investigators suspect alcohol may have been involved, although the investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing.
