EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - Lawyers for the city of Everett failed to convince a judge to toss out a lawsuit that in part blames a faulty road design for a 2010 crash.

The Everett Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1cR9qZx ) that the crash killed two people and injured two others. Driver Camille Spink had a blood alcohol level that was nearly three times the legal limit.

The lawsuit filed in Snohomish County Superior Court says Old Broadway near the Evergreen Cemetery is “unreasonably dangerous.” It says it was the site of nearly two dozen crashes since 2001. It claims the city failed to install adequate traffic control devices.

But Everett officials say there’s no evidence that Spink was confused by the road signs already in place. They argued Friday that a jury shouldn’t be allowed to speculate if additional signs would have prevented the crash. The trial is scheduled for June.
