PUYALLUP, WA – A rollover crash Friday in Puyallup that was possibly related to alcohol and speeding led to the deaths of two teenagers and the injury of two others, according to a report by Q13 Fox.
The incident happened around 3:30 a.m. in the 2600 block of 31st Avenue Southwest, near South Fruitland.
A 16-year-old girl lost control of her vehicle and traveled off the roadway and struck a ditch, before flipping over and landing upside-down.

The younger of the two died at the scene, while the 17-year-old was taken to the hospital and there succumbed to his injuries.
