A 22-year-old Kent man reportedly crashed his pickup twice earlier in the night prior to the wreck that killed his four passengers.
King County prosecutors charged Jesse Tenorio with four counts of vehicular homicide for the Oct. 7 crash along eastbound State Route 518 in Tukwila near the Interstate 405 interchange. ... Tenorio, who was driving his mother’s 2004 Nissan Titan pickup, crashed the vehicle in Kent about 90 minutes prior to the quadruple fatality. Two Kent firefighters from Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority saw the Nissan traveling westbound on South 208th Street from State Route 515 when it passed them going an estimated 60 mph in a posted 40 mph zone and drifted into the oncoming lane. The pickup rounded the curved road and then went out of control and collided into a hillside on South 212th Street near State Route 167.
