GORST, Wash. – A boy was killed in a car accident in Gorst on Monday night, the Washington State Patrol said.
WSP trooper Chelsea Hodgson said the crash involved only one car, and the 7-year-old boy was a passenger.
Hodgson said the car was travelling too fast for the wet, rainy road and lost control. The car hit a guardrail, and the boy was ejected.
Westbound Highway 16 was blocked west of Tremont, and detours were in place. The road has reopened.
