Marysville, Washington – December 19, 2009. It will be a very sad Christmas for one Arlington family this year. Earlier today a 26-year-old man walking on Smokey Point BLVD was struck by a vehicle. Good Samaritans performed CPR on the victim until police and aid arrived, but it was too late. The victim died at the scene.

The suspect driver did not get away and was stopped by the Washington State Patrol. The officer contacted the driver and the driver immediately made the following statement, “What did I hit?” The 34-year-old man from Marysville with soon find out what he hit when he is charged with Vehicular Homicide. During the investigation it was determined the suspect had a blood alcohol level of 0.177 which is more than double the Washington legal limit of 0.08. Vehicular Homicide is a class A felony in Washington, and the Marysville man should expect to see some prison time.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victim.
