Driver in West Seattle crash charged with vehicular homicide
The driver of a truck involved in a fatal collision in West Seattle on Saturday was charged today in King County Superior Court with vehicular homicide and reckless endangerment.
Prosecutors allege that 43-year-old William Kelly Edmon, of Seattle, was driving under the influence when he sped through a red light at Delridge Way Southwest and Southwest Kenyon Street, struck another car and caused his truck to roll over.
A passenger in the bed of the truck, Michael Anthony Fisher, 43, of Seattle, was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene, police and prosecutors said.
Edmon is a repeat DUI offender with multiple criminal convictions and traffic infractions who was driving on a suspended license, prosecutors say in charging documents. He is being held in the King County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on Aug. 14.
A funeral service for Fisher will be held at 6 p.m. Friday at Southwest Mortuary, 9021 Rainier Ave. S., Seattle.
