A 70-year-old man was killed late Tuesday after his car struck a tree and rolled over in Thurston County.

The collision occurred about 11:20 p.m. in the 2700 block of Reservation Road.

The Washington State Patrol said the man’s 2002 Ford Escape was traveling north on Reservation Road near 25th Avenue when it left the roadway, hit the tree and rolled. It stopped on its side on the shoulder of the road.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver has not been identified but troopers said he is from Fairbanks, Alaska.

    lol! That’s quite an old ‘boy’.

  2. Why would a man’s death make you laugh????
    The grammar error might be laughable , if not for a man losing his life…

    I believe that is the first fatality on that road since the new improved version was put into place a few years ago. While the drivers age may or may not have had something to do with the accident, it surely isn’t something to laugh at unless he was “ghost riding the whip”.
