FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a woman was killed after recklessly driving and crashing into a tree without a seat belt on in Federal Way, Washington.
A 9-year-old boy, who was a passenger, sustained minor injuries in the crash Sunday and was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
KOMO reports that just before 10 a.m., a woman in her 30s was driving over 70 mph in a 35-mph speed zone.
Police say an officer attempted to pull the woman over, but she failed to stop. She made a U-turn, then lost control and struck a tree.
The State Patrol is investigating the crash.
