Car accident results in fatality

A single-vehicle accident in Snoqualmie early Sunday morning, Nov. 14, has caused the death of a 33-year-old Graham man.

Officers from the Issaquah Police Department came upon the accident just after midnight and reported it to the Washington State Patrol at 12:12 a.m.

Trooper Julie Startup of the Highway Patrol said the victim was driving a pickup truck northbound on Meadwbrook Avenue when he lost control of the truck. The vehicle left the roadway and rolled before hitting a tree.

The driver was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was pronounced dead.

Wet roadways kept investigators from determining an exact rate of speed, Startup said, but speed was listed as a contributing factor. Drugs and alcohol were not reported to be involved.
