A 72-year-old man died Friday night after a police pursuit ended in a crash in Lynnwood.

A 72-year-old man died Friday night after his van was struck at high speed by a vehicle driven by a felon fleeing police.

A police chase ended with a crash in Mountlake Terrace on Friday night.

Authorities say police were chasing a man and a woman in a van -- wanted on warrants.

According to police, officers tried to pull over a white van because an occupant inside was wanted on a felony warrant. The driver did not stop. Police said the van ran a red light and smashed into another van. The driver of the other van died. “They pulled him right out, he was hurt bad and couldn’t stand up,” said eyewitness Trista Arnston. Two women inside the van that police chased were taken to the hospital.

What money damages are recoverable in a death claim?

Every death from an accident is tragic. When a death is the result of someone else’s negligence, certain survivors may make a wrongful death claim against those responsible. Close relatives may recover monetary damages for the loss of financial support, as well as for medical, funeral, and burial expenses, lost earnings, and in some cases for pain, suffering, and loss of love and affection. Learn more about wrongful death claims here…
