17 year old girl who died in fatal traffic accident on I-5 identified as former Shorewood student

Monday, April 30, 2012

The Washington State Patrol has identified the 17 year old girl who jumped from the 145th Street overpass into southbound I-5 traffic lanes early Saturday morning as Kelsey Lippincott of Tukwila.

They believe she was hit by at least two cars and a semi, who may not have realized what happened and continued on without stopping. WSP asks witnesses to contact Det. Mederios at 425-401-7719.

Shorewood principal Bill Dunbar, in a letter to school families, identified her as a former Shorewood student.
"As a school, we are making every effort to respond to the needs of all of our students, staff and community.  The Shorewood staff as a whole is doing everything possible to respond to this tragic event."
