Driver, 17, pleads guilty in Kitsap County triple fatality

A 17-year-old driver charged with vehicular homicide for the Jan. 11 accident that killed three of his passengers in Kitsap County pleaded guilty to all three counts Thursday.

The teen appeared in Kitsap County Juvenile Court after prosecutors and the defense agreed to recommend juvenile, rather than adult, charges, the Kitsap Sun reported. The Seattle Times is not naming the driver because he is currently charged in juvenile court.

Investigators believe the driver and three other teenagers had just left a party in the Seabeck area and were on Seabeck-Holly Road when the crash occurred around 3:30 a.m., according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office. Luther James Wiggins-Stoudermire, 18, Kassidy Miranda Clark, 16, and Jenna M. Farley, 14, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Kitsap County prosecutors allege the teen was driving 75 mph in a 45 mph zone and “with disregard for the safety of others” after leaving the party, according to charging documents. The teen is accused of smoking marijuana about an hour before the crash.

All four teens were students at Olympic High School. Funerals for the three victims were held over the weekend.
