Marysville Police investigating collision that left a motorcycle rider seriously injured

MARYSVILLE - The Marysville Police Department Collision Investigation Team is investigating a car vs. motorcycle collision in the Lakewood Crossing area of North Marysville in which the motorcycle rider was seriously injured.

Just before 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 27 a motorcycle traveling north on 27th Ave. at 171st Place was struck by a vehicle that had made a left hand turn in front of it. An on-duty Marysville Police officer was driving behind the turning vehicle at the time the collision occurred.

The motorcyclist, a 42-year-old Snohomish woman, suffered severe, life-threatening head injuries and was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center.

The driver of the vehicle, a 22-year-old Everett man, is a delivery driver for a local pizza restaurant and was returning to work following a delivery. He sustained no injuries as a result of the collision but was transported to a local hospital to undergo a blood draw in order to determine if alcohol or drugs played a part in the collision. This is standard procedure following collisions that result in severe injury or death.
