      25-year-old man killed in Thurston County head-on crash

      YELM, Wash. - A 25-year-old man was killed early Friday when he lost control of his vehicle at high speed and slammed head-on into an oncoming vehicle, officials said

      Thurston County sheriff's deputies and medics responded to the scene, near Bald Hill Road SE at 122nd Lane SE, at about 2:30 a.m. after receiving a report of a serious two-vehicle crash, said spokesman Sgt. Ray Brady.

      The 25-year-old was found dead at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle, a 68-year-old man, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

      A preliminary investigation found that the 25-year-old was heading north on Bald Hill Road and crossed the center line into the southbound lane and crashed into an oncoming vehicle driven by a 68-year-old man.

      The 68-year-old was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

      Brady said it appears the 25-year-old was speeding and that was a factor in the collision. His name is being withhheld pending notification of his next of kin.

      No charges are expected since the deceased driver caused the collision.
