SILVANA — A teenager killed in a crash on I-5 has been identified.

Seven people, including four children under the age of four, were in a white Dodge Durango headed south around 5 p.m. Friday near the Stillaguamish River bridge, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The driver, 35, of Alger, tried to change lanes, realized there was another vehicle beside her, and over-corrected while swerving to the left, state troopers reported.

The Dodge rolled off the freeway.

Marcus J. Kenny, 16, of Alger, died at the scene of blunt force injuries, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed Tuesday. Kenny was originally from Connecticut.

He was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the state patrol.

At least three other people were injured: the driver, a 31-year-old passenger from Bellingham and a girl, age 2, from Alger.
