A car carrying five people crashed into a pole there, killing the driver, sending the survivors to the hospital, and closing a stretch of 8th Avenue South for an investigation likely to take a few more hours. The full story’s on our partner site The South Park News.

MONDAY MORNING UPDATE, 7:46 AM: Everyone in the car was a teenager, according to an update on SPD Blotter this morning which says the driver was a 16-year-old boy; the passenger who died at the hospital is described as a girl, no age listed.

  3. D – no names are public currently. Those would have to come from the Medical Examiner, and I doubt that’ll happen before Tuesday – unless family members come forward to share information.

  5. Very sad about this. I coached one of these boys, with one of my sons, for several years in West Seattle Soccer and knew one of the others. Very very sad day.

  7. Lucie Hernandez went to my school, we were in the same grade. she was a sweet girl. she always had a smile on her face and was nice to everybody. There may be no point to this but to let people know how precious life is.
