Two Dead, Driver Arrested, in Hit-and-Run Crash

Two people are dead and a young man is being held for investigation of vehicular homicide following what the Washington State Patrol described as a hit-and-run crash on Highway 5.

Shelly L. Gillihan, 36, and Doren W. McKinney, 35, both of Arlington, were thrown from the bed of a north bound 1984 Toyota pickup truck when it was rear-ended by a car and overturned about 45 minutes before sunset Saturday evening, trooper Charles Sletten said.

McKinney died later that night at Providence Everett Medical Center and Gillihan died early Sunday morning at Harborview Hospital.

Christian Tiedeman, 6, also riding in the pickup, was listed in serious condition early today with head and pelvic injuries at Harborview Hospital.

Jeffery Medford, 32, of Arlington, driver of the pickup, and two other passengers in the vehicle were taken to Providence Everett For treatment of cuts and bruises.

A car was stopped by a Snohomish County Sheriff's deputy at a nearby off ramp to Washington 531 and the driver, a nineteen year old man from Shoreline was jailed in Everett for investigation of leaving the scene of an accident and vehicular homicide. He was not injured.

Witnesses said the car had been passing other traffic before the crash.
