According to local news, a vehicle on Highway 20 allegedly hit a 61-year-old pedestrian from Coupeville. She was trying to cross the road when she was tragically hit and, according to the news, killed.
The Washington State Patrol has identified the woman as Coupeville resident Toni Chapman, 61. She was struck by two vehicles at about 5:52 p.m. and died at the scene. The reports from the authorities show that the 61-year-old pedestrian was simply walking in the southbound lane close to the intersection of NW Broadway and Ebey Road when she was first hit by a vehicle driven by a 76-year-old from Langley and then, when she came to rest in the northbound lane of the Highway, she was hit again by a vehicle driven by an 18-year-old woman from Oak Harbor.
After this tragic accident, Highway 20 was shut down temporarily. As an Everett personal injury attorney I sincerely offer my deepest condolences to the family of the victim in this fatal accident. My heart and thoughts go to those who are mourning this loss.

According to the Washington State Patrol and other news sources, a 55-year-old woman was allegedly involved in a horrible accident last Saturday. Reports show that she was attempting to cross Highway 99 south of 128th Street SW where there are no pedestrian crossing lines. The causes for her to be crossing the street where she wasn’t supposed to are still unknown. Authorities are still investigating so more can be drawn from this occurring.
The driver who unfortunately hit the woman, a 22-year-old man from Everett, was headed northbound when his vehicle struck the woman. According to an official, full details aren’t entirely available, all that is known is that it seems that she simply threw herself against the car.
Reports also claim that it was raining lightly and the woman was dressing dark clothes. The driver, a 27-year-old man and the 3-year-old passenger are doing fine, the woman however lost her life.
