The 16-year-old died in the two-vehicle crash early Thursday, which also killed a 21-year-old driver and a dog.
Medical investigators have identified the 16-year-old who died after crashing an allegedly stolen vehicle into another car early Thursday in Seattle’s Highland Park neighborhood, also killing a 21-year-old man and a dog.
The teen, Kenneth Dion Williams Jr., died at the scene at Highland Park Drive Southwest, according to police and the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
He was driving a Honda Accord, and allegedly fleeing police, when he crossed the roadway’s centerline and struck the other vehicle. Medical investigators identified the 21-year-old driver of that vehicle as Devin Francis.
About three hours before the crash, three people allegedly stole the Honda at gunpoint near 15th Avenue South and South State Street, police said. Later, investigators found a handgun in the stolen vehicle.
