Des Moines man killed in one-vehicle accident
A Des Moines man, 23, was killed in an early morning speeding car accident in White Center on June 9.
Witnesses to the accident said that they saw the man’s Ford Explorer leaving the parking lot of Mt. View Elementary School at 1:15 a.m. driving at a high speed.
When the vehicle got to 108th Street the man, for unknown reasons, crossed the center line into the westbound lanes. After crossing the lane, the man hit a raised curb which sent him into a tree. He was transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead from injuries sustained in the accident.
Speeding car accidents can cause serious injury to all involved. Our thoughts and condolences are with the friends and family of the victim.
