Man killed in police pursuit identified as 19-year-old from Oregon

The man who died in a car crash early Saturday after leading police on a chase was identified Sunday as McKinnon Stenkamp.

Stenkamp was 19 years old, and a resident of Enterprise, Ore., according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.

He died in Renton after his car careened off the road in the 2100 block of Martin Luther King Junior Way South. Kent police started pursuing the car on southbound Interstate 5 because they suspected the driver was intoxicated.  King County sheriff’s deputies later joined the chase.
