DARRINGTON — Two teenagers were killed in a crash Monday in Darrington.
The driver, a 19-year-old man from Aberdeen, struck a large piece of construction equipment parked alongside the road around 3 p.m. on the Mountain Loop Highway at Clear Creek Road, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
The driver and a passenger, a 17-year-old boy from Darrington, both died at the scene.
Deputies shut down the road to investigate. They believed “speed may have been a factor,” according to a new release from the sheriff’s office issued Monday afternoon.
