KENT, Wash. - A 16-year-old Kentridge High School student has died of injuries he suffered when his car was hit in an intersection a block away from the school.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg said Teagan McGinnis passed awat at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, a few hours after the crash.

According to police, McGinnis was driving east on South 208th Street when he was hit by a car trying to make a left turn onto 208th Street from 120th Place Southeast. The collision caused the student to lose control of his car and hit another vehicle.

A Renton police sergeant drove by the scene of the accident immediately after it happened and alerted the Kent Police Department before performing life-saving efforts on the student.

Teagan was transported to Harborview Medical Center, but doctors were unable to save him.

The other drivers involved in the crash, a 49-year-old Kent woman and a 58-year-old Kent woman, were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

There was no word on whether either of them would face charges in connection with the crash.
