Meghan Stivers, Lake Stevens, was driving home from work on Marine View Drive in Marysville on July 29, when she was struck by a 1996 Dodge Ram driven by Arlington resident Randy Sedy, 45.

Stivers died at the scene from head injuries.

Sedy, whose blood-alcohol level was .31, almost four times the legal limit of .08, was charged with vehicular homicide on Friday, September 30. Other charges included involvement in hit-and-run accident and third-degree assault in connection with a series of collisions that injured a Marysville man.

Sedy was first seen by witnesses weaving across the center lane and onto a sidewalk on State Ave. in Marysville. He was then seen driving west into the eastbound lanes of Fourth St. It was here that police officers tried to stop the truck.

Sedy’s truck ran into the Marysville man’s BMW. The man saw the Dodge Ram coming toward him near Cedar Ave. Sedy hit the car and then backed up and hit it again until he could maneuver around it. The man sustained non-life threatening injuries.

From there Sedy continued on to 33rd Ave. and Marine View Dr. where he struck Stivers’ Mercury Sable near I-5.

Stivers had pulled over to a gravel lot when Sedy crossed the eastbound lanes and jumped over the curb pushing her car almost 58 feet.

Sedy allegedly told police that he had consumed a fifth of vodka and some beer before leaving his home in search of his daughter. He also has a conviction for drunk driving in 2005 and is currently being held in the Snohomish County Jail on $500,000 bail.

Stivers graduated from Lake Stevens High School and was attending college and working at the Best Western Hotel on the Tulalip Indian Reservation before she was killed.
