Sleeping teenager killed when car crashes into Lacey mobile home

A speeding car crashed into a Lacey mobile home early Tuesday morning around 12:30am and killed Austin Blankenship, 16, who was sleeping inside at the time of the car accident.

The Seattle Times reports that the driver fled the scene of the hit-and-run accident and is being sought by police. A passenger in the car has arrested a passenger in the vehicle.

One neighbor reported that there was a power outage at the time of the car accident but Lacey Police Lt. Phil Comstack said that speeding not the lack of streetlamps was the probable cause of the accident.

The driver of the vehicle most certainly faces felony charges; Washington State vehicle code RCW 46.52.020 states that it is a driver’s duty to remain at the accident scene of any car accident which resulted in the injury or death to a person.
