Driver 'got air' in fatal Spokane Valley crashOctober 31, 2013 @ 5:50 am
SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. (AP) - Investigators believe a 16-year-old driver was speeding to "get air" on a section of a Spokane Valley road known as the Ponderosa Jump when he crashed October 5, killing two 15-year-old girls in his car.
KREM reports ( http://bit.ly/1ix7ykh) court documents show he had received his license the day before the crash. He's recovering from injuries and has not been charged. The case is being investigated as vehicular homicide.
The boy was giving the two girls a ride from a birthday party on a Saturday night. Investigators believe he was driving 50 mph in a 25 mph zone when he lost control and hit a tree. The crash killed McKenzie Mott and Josie K. Freier, both 15-year-old University High School students.
