GRANITE FALLS, Wash. – The Sheriff’s Office Collision Investigation Unit (CIU) responded to a serious crash near Hidden Valley Road and N. Lake Roesiger Road around 4:45 p.m. Friday, August 14. An Eagle Talon passenger car was attempting to pass a white pickup truck when the Eagle Talon lost control and rolled off the roadway. The driver, an 18 year-old male, the front passenger, a 16 year-old female, and the backseat passenger, a 14 year-old male, were all transported by aid to Providence Regional Medical Center. The 14 year-old male was ejected from the vehicle and suffered serious injuries. Shortly after arriving at Providence, the 14 year-old was transported to Harborview Medical Center.

CIU is still working to determine the cause of the collision, but detectives believe speed and possibly road rage were contributing factors. Anyone with information about this crash or anyone who witnessed the Eagle Talon and white pickup truck driving prior to the crash is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office Tipline 425-388-3845.
