Man fatally struck by SUV in Everett

EVERETT, Wash. -- Police say a man was killed early Monday when he was hit by an SUV on Highway 526 in Everett near the Boeing plant.

Everett Police Sgt. Robert Goetz said roads were very slick at the time of the crash, but it was not clear if the conditions were a factor.

The eastbound lanes of SR-526 were closed for several hours while police collected evidence at the scene, and investigators are still trying to determine why the man was on the highway.

His name has not been released.
