The accident did involve any other vehicles.

Issaquah teen dies in car accident

February 8, 2011

Tyler Lucas

Issaquah teenager Tyler Lucas died the morning of Feb. 1 after his Dodge Neon struck two other vehicles on Interstate 405 in Bellevue.

The 18-year-old was driving northbound on I-405 just north of Interstate 90 at about 10:20 a.m. A collision further up the interstate had caused traffic to slow, and Lucas made a sudden motion to avoid stopping traffic, the Washington State Patrol said.

When traffic slowed, Lucas braked, lost control and rear-ended a Chevrolet Suburban driven by Mountlake Terrace resident Peter Gradwohl.

Lucas’ Neon then spun into another lane and struck a Honda Accord driven by Shelly Keene, 46, of Renton. Troopers said Lucas’ vehicle was moving too fast for the conditions, and was likely a factor in the accident. Lucas was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.

Gradwohl was taken to Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellevue. Keene was treated for minor injuries. The collision is under investigation.

Drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the accident, and all parties involved had been wearing seatbelts, police said.
