Man killed in crash into Lake Stevens house
LAKE STEVENS (AP) — Police say a fleeing car crashed into a house early Thursday at Lake Stevens, killing a passenger.
An officer had tried to pull over the car on Highway 9 for driving erratically when it sped off at more than 100 miles per hour.
KING reports the car was going at least 90 mph when it hit the house.
The passenger died at the scene. The driver had to be cut out of the car. The driver was taken to a hospital and will likely face a vehicular homicide charge.
No one inside the house was hurt, but the crash knocked one person out of bed.
