A 27-year-old Snohomish County man was killed and a 16-year-old girl was injured Saturday night in a one-vehicle accident north of Monroe.

According to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, the accident occurred around 9 p.m. The vehicle was headed south near the 23300 block of Woods Creek Road, in an unincorporated part of the county, when it went off the road, down an embankment and crashed into a tree.

The man, who was driving, died at the scene. The girl was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with what were described as serious injuries. A second passenger, a 19-year-old man who was sitting in the rear of the car, was not hurt and told investigators what had happened.

The identities of the victims were not immediately released, pending positive identification and the girl’s age.
