LYNNWOOD, Wash. – The Sheriff’s Office Collision Investigation Unit responded to a serious collision in the 3300 block of Larch Way around 9 p.m. last night. A passenger vehicle lost control around a corner, hit a guardrail and drove through a fence before coming to a stop. The driver, a 16 year-old male, had minor injuries. The passenger, a 14 year-old male, suffered serious injuries. Both males were extracted from the vehicle and transported by aid to Harborview Medical Center.

CIU is still working to determine the cause of the collision, but detectives believe speed may have been a contributing factor. The road remained closed for more than six hours during the investigation.
