The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that the vehicle of a woman who turned herself in three days after a hit and run that killed an Index man is in fact the vehicle that killed him.
Stacy Lain Broyles was killed along Saturday, Aug. 4, when he was walking along the Index-Galena Road with his dog.
He was struck by a vehicle that hit him and his dog, killing both. Broyles was dragged some distance and evidence at the scene suggested that the driver may have stopped briefly, according to local sources. The driver fled the scene.
Three days after the collision, a 49 year-old Everett woman contacted investigators about her involvement in the accident. Her vehicle was seized to be processed for evidence, and the results positively verified that it was her vehicle that struck Broyles. The case is still under investigation and will be referred to the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office to determine if charges will be filed.
