Fiery Crash Kills One and Injures Two More in Kent

Fiery head on crash kills a passenger and injures two others in Kent.

Kent, WA: Just after 10 p.m. emergency crews received several calls of a serious head on crash in the 9700 block of Canyon Road.

When crews arrived, they found a three car head-on crash with one vehicle engulfed in flames.

Once crews extinguished the car fire, they located a female passenger in the back seat deceased.

Kent Police called out their traffic investigation team and closed Canyon Road for several hours while they tried to piece together what happened.

Kent Police state that two occupants in the red sedan were transported to area hospitals with one of them having what was described as serious, but did not believe life-threatening, injuries.

Kent Police also state that they are investigating this crash as a possible hit-and-run. They had reports from witnesses state that they saw another passenger and the driver run from the scene after it caught fire. At this time, Kent Police cannot confirm if this was a hit- and-run because of a lack of cooperation from the witnesses.

Kent Police were also working to try to confirm who the owner of the vehicle is.
