Three Kent men die in single-vehicle crash Sunday along SR 518 in Tukwila | Update: victims identified

Kent driver under investigation for vehicular homicide; fourth man also killed

At least three Kent men were among the four men killed in a single-vehicle crash early Sunday morning along State Route 518 in Tukwila.

The driver, a 22-year-old Kent man, survived the crash after he was ejected from the vehicle, according to a Washington State Patrol press memo. Paramedics transported the driver to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was treated Sunday and Monday. He is under investigation for vehicular homicide as drugs or alcohol were involved, according to the State Patrol.

Troopers arrested the driver for investigation of four counts of vehicular homicide, according to King County jail records. Troopers booked the man into the county’s Seattle Correctional Facility late Monday afternoon.

Three of the men are from Kent and are ages 22, 21 and 18, according to the State Patrol. A fourth victim also is 22. The State Patrol did not list a hometown for that man. All four died at the scene.

The four victims died from multiple blunt force injuries and the manner of death is accident, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office. The four men are:

• Myron Singh, 22

• Luis Perez, 21

• Juan Carrasco-Rodriguez, 18

• Anthony Perez, 22

The crash occurred at about 2:17 a.m. Sunday when a 2004 Nissan Titan pickup eastbound on SR 518 left the roadway and struck a guardrail to the right side of the road, according to the State Patrol. The truck then rotated and struck a concrete bridge pillar underneath Interstate 5 near the SR 518 and I-405 interchange. The roadway was closed for eight hours.
