Washington_State_Patrol_patchThe Washington State Patrol wants to hear from anyone who may have seen a two-vehicle fatal crash during the early morning of Monday, Feb. 29.

The Washington State Patrol’s Major Accident Investigation Team is investigating the fatal crash that occurred at approximately 2:55 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 29.

A Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) truck was parked on the inside shoulder of northbound I-5 at milepost 190, which is near the Everett Mall Way exit in Everett. The truck had a truck mounted attenuator, which looks like a trailer, attached to the rear and an overhead arrow board directing traffic to stay right.

The driver of a 1991 Ford Explorer drove onto the inside shoulder. Physical evidence shows he was on the shoulder for several hundred feet before striking the rear of the WSDOT truck. It caught fire after the impact.

The driver of the Explorer, who has been identified as 25-year-old Levi Spromberg of Lynnwood by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner, was fatally injured. The WSDOT truck driver sustained minor injuries.

Major Accident Investigation Team detectives are examining all aspects that lead to this collision and seek additional witnesses to the actual event or anything leading up to or after the crash.  If you know anything about this collision, or know someone who does, you are asked to call Detective Sergeant Jerry Cooper at 425-508-0602 or e-mail him at
