Officers were dispatched at about 7:20 p.m. to the crash and found a single occupant in the vehicle with life-threatening injuries, according to a Friday email from Kent Police Assistant Chief Jarod Kasner. First responders stabilized the man and paramedics transported him to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
“Initial information suggests that speed appears to be a major factor in this one car accident,” said Kasner, who didn’t release an estimated speed of the vehicle.
