Teen booked on felonies after fatal accidentPosted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - A 15-year-old Spokane girl was booked on felony counts of Vehicular Homicide and Vehicular Assault Thursday morning for her role in an April 4th crash that killed one 14-year-old passenger and seriously injured a second.
The girl and group of teens had just left the Albertsons store at Trent and Argonne, where they'd stolen some doughnut holes, when they were spotted speeding by a Spokane Valley Police Officer.
Thinking the police were after them for stealing, she turned off of Trent and was driving westbound on Union at about twice the speed limit. The street there ends in a "T" intersection at Waterworks.
The girl was unable to stop the car. She crossed the intersection and crashed through a cyclone fence, into some heavy construction equipment.
A 14-year-old boy who wasn't wearing a seatbelt suffered severe head injuries and died the following day. A 14-year-old girl in the car suffered broken vertebrae in her back. The driver also suffered injuries in the crash and had to be extricated by fire department personnel.
