Single-car crash in Issaquah kills 2 teens, injures third

Two teenage boys were killed and another was injured in a fiery single-car crash in the Cougar Mountain area near Issaquah yesterday.

The crash occurred about 1:05 p.m. on Southeast 60th Street near 182nd Avenue Southeast, said Sgt. John Urquhart of the King County Sheriff’s Office. The 2000 Volkswagen Jetta went off the road, struck a tree and burst into flames.

Excessive speed apparently caused the crash, Urquhart said.

The 16-year-old driver and a male passenger in the front seat died at the scene. A 14-year-old in the back seat was taken to Harborview Medical Center.

Investigators did not release the identities of the boys. All are believed to be from Bellevue, Urquhart said.
