6 killed in 2 separate motor vehicle accidents in Western Washington over Veteran’s day weekend

Six men were killed this weekend in two separate motor vehicle accidents. These tragic accidents are devastating to the communities in which the victims lived and bring unfathomable grief to their families.

On Whidbey Island, three young adult men ages 19, 20, and 22 were killed when a 18-year-old Langley woman lost control of the car she was driving and struck a tree. The car burst into flames and only the driver escaped. The driver was taken to Whidbey Island General Hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries. According to KOMO News, she is being investigated for vehicular homicide because police believe alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.h
In Ethel, Washington, the driver of a pickup up truck, a 49-year-old Rochester man, was killed along with his two passengers, a 44-year-old Centralia man and a 46-year-old Rochester man when the pickup truck driver lost control on an icy road, crossed the centerline and was broadsided by a semi truck.

Our condolences to the victims’ families.
