Friday Memo: Homeowner kills intruder … Car flips, teen dies … The Glove

Homeowner shoots, kills one of two intruders: It happened early this morning in Maple Valley when a man and a woman came onto the homeowner’s property, apparently bent on breaking into a container there. The woman was reported in critical condition at Harborview. More information to come.

Weather: Come on, it’s raining out there. And more’s coming tomorrow. Might get a tad better Sunday, but don’t hold your breath.

More teens in a car that flipped over: Three boys were in a car that went off the road in Kitsap County last night and flipped, landing upside down in a creek. Two of the teens were able to get out. The third kid, a 14-year-old Seabeck boy, was trapped as water started to fill the car. Although rescuers were able to get him out, he later died. You might recall that five teen girls were in a car that flipped early yesterday near Puyallup. That was at 3 a.m. and the driver was arrested for investigation of driving drunk. We hope none of the boys had been been drinking. Here’s why… In recent days we’ve had these stories: Wrong-way crash kills Seattle woman, in which troopers said the driver appeared to have been drinking, and Bail set at $2.5 million for driver suspected of killing 2 pedestrians, in which the driver was drunk.

The Glove: Gary Payton has been elected to Basketball Hall of Fame. Nice.

Uh-oh, traffic cam on I-5 in Lewis County: Speeders will get their pix taken by a radar-triggered camera starting Monday in an Interstate 5 construction zone in Lewis County. So if you’re heading south, beware and slow down.
