SNOQUALMIE PASS, WA — A devastating incident on Interstate 90 claimed the life of a 23-year-old Lynnwood man late Sunday night. The accident occurred just west of the Snoqualmie Pass summit, adding to the list of tragic events on this notorious stretch of road.

Washington State Patrol reports that the unnamed man was found lying on the road when he was struck by a passing vehicle, leading to fatal injuries. The incident, happening just before 11 p.m., prompted an immediate response from emergency services, but the man unfortunately did not survive.

Post-accident, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) announced that all eastbound lanes of I-90 were closed at 12:07 a.m. Monday for investigation purposes. These lanes were reopened around 4 a.m., following a comprehensive investigation by state troopers. The closure led to significant delays for night-time travelers and early morning commuters.

Investigators are looking into the unusual circumstances of why the man was lying on the road, with no clear explanations emerging yet. Authorities are urging anyone with information or who witnessed the incident to come forward to aid in the ongoing investigation.

The Snoqualmie Pass is often noted for its difficult driving conditions, particularly in the winter. While accidents in this area are not uncommon, incidents like this one are particularly shocking and serve as a somber reminder of road safety.
