Troopers investigating vehicular assault after 1 killed in head-on crash in Stanwood

One person has died following a head-on crash on SR-532 in Stanwood. 

Both eastbound and westbound lanes were fully blocked at 35th Avenue and just east of 64th Avenue around 4 p.m. for the crash, but have since re-opened. 

Washington State Patrol Trooper Jacob Kennett told FOX 13 that this crash is being investigated as a vehicular assault. He said he believes drugs and alcohol were involved, but the crash is still being investigated.

The causing driver later died from his injuries at Providence Medical Center. He has only been identified as a 39-year-old from Stanwood. 

Troopers say he was traveling eastbound and crossed over the center line and hit another car head-on in the westbound lane. 

This is a developing story.
