Medics rushed three teenage boys to the hospital early Thursday morning after a high-speed crash near Beaver Lake.

The speeding car lost control, tore through a fence and then slammed into a tree near Southeast 25th Way and Beaver Lake Way Southeast, about a half-mile east of Beaver Lake Park.

Eastside Fire & Rescue crews extricated the boys from the mangled wreck of the white Subaru and transported them to the hospital. Officials described the injuries as not life-threatening and expect all of the teenagers to survive.

Crews had to use the Jaws of Life to pull two of the boys from the crashed car.

Residents in the area called 911 just after midnight to report a loud crashing noise.

The investigation into the crash continues.

    I live on Beaver Lake Way and this is the second crash within a two block range in the last two years. Cars do not follow the speed limit and drive at high speeds throughout the night. You never, ever see Sammamish PD in the area and they are now trying to open up access so that Trossachs residence can also speed through. If that happens, I expect a fatality within the year!!

    Near Beaver Lake park where I live, I have seen a white Subaru WRX, possibly STI or just a de-badged WRX that is always speeding in the area. I wouldn’t go as far to say that they got what they deserved but they need to drive more responsibly. Hope they are ok.

    These boys are very respectable and admired by many. I love them as if they were my own sons and they deserve better than your hassels. Give them a break, I know they would do the same for you.

Got something to say?
