The driver of the vehicle, also a 24-year-old man, was treated at Harborview Medical Center and was arrested upon release. He may be charged with Vehicular Homicide. Washington State Vehicle Code RCW 46.61.520, states that Vehicular Homicide can be charged if a person is killed in a motor vehicle accident and the driver was driving with reckless disregard for the safety of others, was driving under the influence or driving recklessly.
It appears that speed was certainly a factor in this accident. Police are investigating.
