Two young brothers have died of injuries sustained in a Saturday night car accident along the Bay Street curve in Tacoma. The Bay Street curve is an area where Tacoma police have installed speed cameras in order to slow down traffic. Jordan Davis age 11 died a short time after the car accident and his brother, Jared Davis, age 8, died Sunday evening after he underwent surgery for his injuries.
According to a report written by Stacey Mulick in Tacoma’s The News Tribune, the car accident occurred around 10:35 after the mother, a 41-year-old Bonney Lake woman, and her two sons left the Monster Truck Show held at the Tacoma Dome. The woman lost control of the car along the curve and went over the concrete lane divider and into oncoming traffic. Her car was hit by a small SUV on the passenger side.
The Tacoma Police department is investigating the mother for Vehicular Homicide as they believe alcohol and speed may have contributed to the accident. Vehicular Homicide can be charged if a person is killed in a car accident and the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs or driving with reckless disregard to the safety of others.
