EVERETT, Wash. – Sheriff’s Office detectives have identified the driver of a vehicle that struck a 22 year-old man on January 23 at the intersection of 128th St and 8th Ave W, leaving him seriously injured.  A tip from the public helped detectives identify the type of vehicle the suspect was driving.  Detectives also pulled video from businesses in the area where the collision occurred, which provided them with a partial license plate number, leading them to locate the suspect vehicle and driver.

The suspect driver, a 32 year-old male from Everett, is cooperating with the investigation, which is still ongoing.  Once the investigation is complete, charges will be referred to the prosecuting attorney.

The victim is still receiving medical treatment at Harborview Regional Medical Center.
