Man’s family witnesses his fatal crash

BURIEN, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a man’s family witnessed his death in a head-on-crash involving a stolen vehicle in Burien, Washington.

KOMO reports that crews responded to the scene around 8 a.m. Monday where a 44-year-old man driving a truck was hit and killed by a man driving a stolen Subaru.

When deputies and medics arrived, the two wrecked vehicles were found at the crash site, which is near Southern Heights Elementary School. The 44-year-old man’s family was driving just behind his truck.

Sgt. Ryan Abbott with the King County Sheriff’s Office said chaplains were consoling the family.

The alleged car thief survived the crash and was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. In addition to facing a vehicular homicide charge, the man will also face a charge of vehicular theft when he’s booked in King County jail.
