Eastside crash causes death of Kirkland man

A crash killed a 30-year-old Kirkland man early this morning who lost control of his car on Avondale Road Northeast, and struck several trees and landed on the side of the road. Police said that speed, and alcohol, were definitely to blame for the seattle automobile accidents.

According to investigators, the man was driving more than 100 miles an hour and not wearing a seat belt. He was driving south on Avondale shortly before 3 a.m., when nearby residents heard a crash and called 911, police said.

Jim Bove, Police department spokesman, said the white Cadillac finally stopped on the east side of Avondale Road along Bear Creek, facing the northbound lanes. Before coming to a rest, it had sheared off several trees and the impact of the car accident left it ripped into sections.

“Basically, it did a 360,” Bove said
No other occupants of the vehicle were found, though it was at first believed by investigators that a passenger may have been ejected from the back seat vehicle upon impact.
