A memorial page has been set up for Austin Scott, the recent Shorecrest graduate who was killed in a rollover accident in Kittitas County, 17 miles east of Ellensburg, while returning home from college for the holidays.

Scott, 18, was traveling with a carpool of WSU students, when the young driver, who troopers say was going too fast for the icy road conditions, lost control of her car, a 2003 Ford Escape, which left the roadway and turned over.

Four of the five students, including Scott, were wearing seat belts. Three were treated at a local hospital and released. The one student who was not wearing a seat belt was stabilized and transported in satisfactory condition to Harborview. Scott was declared dead at the scene.

The accident happened at 10:40am, Saturday, December 15, 2012. There was no suspicion of drugs or alcohol use.
