One person is dead, and two others injured, after a car flipped near Fall City on Sunday night (March 3), according to the King County Sheriff’s Department.
The accident happened at about 9:30 p.m. on March 3, in the 1900 block of West Snoqualmie River Road Southeast.
The preliminary report shows the vehicle, heading south, may have been traveling too fast and couldn’t make a curve — causing the car to hit a guardrail and flip upside down into Patterson Creek, Sgt. Ryan Abbott of the sheriff’s office said.
Detectives believe the deceased male was the driver, and likely did not die of drowning, given that the car landed in two feet of water. The two other vehicle occupants, a male and a female, were transported to the hospital with minor injuries. All appeared to be in their 20s or 30s.
