LAKE STEVENS — Prosecutors have charged a Lake Stevens man with vehicular homicide, alleging that in April while trying to outrun Lake Stevens police he crashed into a house, killing his passenger.
Nicholas Peterson, 26, died at the scene.
Prosecutors allege that Rodrique Johnston, 42, was high on methamphetamine at the time of the crash. Police reported that he was driving a stolen Honda when he led an officer on a short, high-speed pursuit. Johnston allegedly lost control of the car, hit a ditch and smashed into a house. No one in the house was hurt, but one man was thrown from the couch inside.
Johnston has 26 misdemeanor convictions, the majority of which are driving offenses.
