A 16-year-old Enumclaw boy was killed in a Halloween night accident along state Route 410, and a 20-year-old man from Buckley is under investigation for vehicular homicide.
Now, as they sort out details surrounding the incident, Washington State Patrol authorities are putting out a call for witnesses.
