A Federal Way man was struck and killed by a car after he ran into traffic on an Everett highway for unknown reasons on Thursday night.

Witnesses reported that the man, later identified as 30-year-old Dahai Guan, had left a nearby casino before the accident, said Keith Leary, a Washington State Patrol trooper.

Leary said Guan ran into traffic at approximately 9:51 p.m. at 13010 State Route 99 at Manner Way in Everett.

A Lynnwood driver traveling southbound struck Guan with his 1999 Chevrolet Metro when he stepped in front of the vehicle, according to the state patrol report,

Medics transported Guan to Harborview Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

The Lynnwood driver was uninjured.

The report continues that the cause of the accident was that Guan was not using the crosswalk. Drugs or alcohol were not involved in the accident, the report notes.
