One teen killed, one injured in Soap Lake crash

A teen girl was killed early this morning and another teen seriously injured in a one-car crash near Soap Lake, Wash. Grant County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the crash about 5:49 a.m. The girl, who has not been identified, was traveling westbound on the 3000 block of County Road 20-NE when her vehicle left the roadway and struck a driveway culvert. She and her passenger, a 17-year-old boy, were both ejected from the vehicle. The girl was declared dead at the scene. The boy, whose name also has not been released, was taken to Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake before being flown in to a Spokane hospital with critical injuries. Neither was wearing their seatbelt and investigators believe speed and alcohol were factors in the collision.
