Everett cops rescue pickup truck driver after crash and fire

Everett Police were able to free the driver of a van that crashed and caught fire early Sunday morning outside Emory’s Bistro & Bar on 19th Ave. SE at Silver Lake in Everett, Washington.

The truck was apparently heading south shortly before 3 a.m. when it crashed through a railing and into the Emory Restaurant sign. The truck then caught fire.

Upon arrival, EPD officers had to fight in the smoke to free the driver and bring him to a safe place to be treated by medics.

The driver was the sole occupant of the truck and was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Here are some MyEverettNews.com photos of the scene.
