Teen Killed In Car Accident Near Soap Lake

EPHRATA - Grant County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating a one-car motor vehicle collision east of Soap Lake which killed one person and seriously injured another.

Emergency responders were dispatched at 5:49 a.m. to the 3000 block of County Road 20-NE, about three miles east of Soap Lake.

The preliminary investigation has determined the westbound vehicle left the roadway on the north side of Road-20 NE and struck a driveway culvert. Both occupants of the vehicle were ejected. Neither occupant was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision. Speed and alcohol are suspected to be a factor in the collision. Deputies are on the scene investigating.

One 17 year-old female was declared dead at the scene. Her body is in the custody of the Grant County Coroner's Office. Her identity is being withheld pending notification of next-of-kin.

One 17 year-old male was initially transported by ambulance to Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake, and then flown by MedStar helicopter to a Spokane hospital. He is suffering from critical injuries. His identity has yet to be confirmed.
