A 20-year-old man Darrington died early Sunday morning after his car ran off the road in rural Skagit County, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The car rammed into a cluster of trees and the driver was ejected from the vehicle. Cousins was pronounced dead at the scene, a patrol spokesman said.
The accident remained under investigation Sunday night. It was unknown whether Cousins was wearing a seatbelt or whether alcohol or drugs were involved.
