Reed, said Deputies, was spinning his wheels and racing back and forth on the road. A female who happened to be at the park area with some of her friends got in his truck, despite what authorities said were pleadings from her friends not to.

Reed left the area at a very high rate of speed, said witnesses, towards Meals Road but he apparently lost control and the truck rolled into a ditch. The woman was killed in the crash, Reed was flown to Harborview Medical Center due to his injuries. No update has been given on his condition.

Benton County Deputies say neither Reed nor the woman (whose name has not been released) was wearing seatbelts. It is not known if she was thrown from the vehicle. The crash remains under investigation.
