Update: 7:46 a.m. | The Washington State Patrol says that a 16-year-old boy and a 68-year-old man died in a crash in Redmond shortly before 9 p.m. on Sunday.
According to the State Patrol the 16-year-old was driving a Dodge Dakota pickup east on Highway 202 when he struck a white Ford Explorer driving west on the highway. The Explorer driver was killed, a passenger in the Ford survived.
“The 16-year-old continued eastbound in the westbound lanes and struck a third vehicle. The pickup then rolled over on its side, blocking both lanes,” said Trooper Chris Webb.
The 16-year-old and the 68-year-old have not as yet been identified, Webb said.
A woman driving the second car struck by the pickup, a 2009 Mercedes, suffered minor injuries and declined medical attention, Webb said.
The cause of the crashes are under investigation; Webb said alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
“It could be distracted driving, lack of sleep, we may never know,” Webb said.
