BRIDGEPORT - A man was arrested for vehicular homicide in connection to a crash on Saturday in Bridgeport that left a 17-year-old dead.
Douglas County deputes, along with fire and medical personnel, responded about 6 p.m. Saturday to a single-car crash in the 300 block of 17th Street, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
A 17-year-old girl was reportedly trapped inside the vehicle, with life-threatening injuries. The girl was taken to Three Rivers Hospital where she was pronounced dead. The girl’s name has not been released.
The driver, 35-year-old Bridgeport resident Christopher J. Williams, was contacted outside the car and later taken to Three Rivers Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
“The preliminary investigation shows speed and intoxicants were contributing factors to the collision,” Douglas County Undersheriff Tyler Caille stated.
Williams was booked into Okanogan County Jail after being released from the hospital.
