SILVANA — A 16-year-old boy died Friday evening in a rollover crash on I-5 just north of the Stillaguamish River, according to the Washington State Patrol.

A Dodge Durango reportedly was traveling southbound on I-5 shortly after 5 p.m. when the driver began to change lanes. The driver realized there was another vehicle there, so swerved back to the left, trooper Heather Axtman wrote in a tweet. The vehicle over corrected, left the roadway and rolled multiple times, Axtman wrote.

There were seven people in the Dodge, including three 2-year-old girls and a 3-year-old boy, according to a state patrol news release. A 35-year-old woman, a 31-year-old man and a 2-year-old girl were injured and transported to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.

The teenage boy was reported dead at the scene.
