Snohomish County, WA – The Washington State Patrol responded to a four vehicle crash on Southbound I-5 near milepost 193 in the city of Everett around 5:58 a.m. on April 12th, 2019.
According to a press memo from the Washington State Patrol, 33-year old Jessica Corbin of Mount Vernon was traveling Southbound I-5 in a 2012 Dodge Avenger when Troopers say she made an improper lane change and struck a grey 2016 Chevrolet Silverado being driven by 51-year old Arnold Freshour of Marysville.
Troopers say Corbin’s Avenger then spun out and struck a black 2014 Subaru Forester being driven by 30-year old Jaimee Nedrow of Lake Stevens and a blue 2004 International Tractor with Flatbed Trailer being driven by 60-year old Sonny Thompson of Camano Island. Trooper say the Tractor and flatbed then struck a guard rail before it left the roadway and rolled over, coming to rest blocking the Pacific Avenue on-ramp.
Troopers say Corbin and Thompson were both injured and transported to Providence Hospital with injuries. The drivers of all four vehicles were wearing seat belts and drugs or alcohol did not play a role in the crash.
The cause of the crash is listed as improper lane change. Charges are pending against Corbin. Two lanes of I-5 were blocked for two hours and the Pacific on ramp was blocked for 11 hours for the crash investigation and so crews could clean up the spilled lumber.
