LAKE STEVENS, WA – A two-car collision Friday night resulted in the death of a 19 year-old Snohomish man.  The victim was driving eastbound on 20th St SE when he was struck by a vehicle traveling southbound on SR9 a little after midnight.  The suspect driver is a 31 year-old Snohomish man.  The incident remains under investigation, but it appears that alcohol and running a red light may be factors in the collision.  Washington State Patrol provided assistance in the blood draw and Lake Stevens Police Department provided scene security.

Identification of the deceased, as well as cause and manner of death, will be determined by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner.
