An 18-year-old Spanaway woman died early this morning after crashing her car into a tree.

The collision occurred just before 3 a.m. in the 2200 block of 208th Street East in Spanaway.

“The vehicle was traveling at an excessive speed, left the roadway and collided with a tree,” said Pierce County sheriff’s Det. Sgt. Jerry Bates.

The woman was extricated from the car and pronounced dead at the hospital. It’s unknown if she was wearing a seat belt.

Her two passengers, an 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy, were not seriously injured.

The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office has not yet identified the woman who was killed.

    So sad. So many young people dying lately. I won’t speculate as to the cause, out of respect for her loved ones, but something tells me most of the deaths I’ve been reading on here with teens could have been avoided. So sad. RIP
