One young man was killed and another injured during a single-car crash in Buckley.
The incident occurred shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday on 112th Street East, near the point where 112th meets state Route 410.
Buckley Police Chief Jim Arsanto was hesitant to release details by mid-day Wednesday, as an investigation was ongoing.
"At this point in the investigation, we're looking at felony hit-and-run and vehicular homicide," he said.
Details remain sketchy, but Arsanto confirmed a Pontiac passenger car was traveling eastbound on 112th. There were two males in the vehicle, he said, a 17-year-old from Puyallup and a 19-year-old from the Bonney Lake area. The chief said the 17-year-old died at the scene and the 19-year-old was injured.
The survivor did not call for help, Arsanto said, instead phoning a friend. The survivor was picked up and taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Enumclaw before being transferred to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.Contact Enumclaw Courier Herald Senior Writer, Editor Kevin Hanson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-802-8205.
