Christopher Wittman, 24, of Tukwila, was charged Wednesday (Jan. 15) with ‘Vehicular Homicide’ after one of the victims in the Dec. 18 SR-509 collision died last week (read our previous coverage here). Wittman was allegedly impaired by alcohol when he crashed his car through a fence and over an embankment onto SR-509 and collided with the victimsâ€™ car. Barbara Eakin, 54, died Jan. 7 from her injuries. Her husband was injured in the collision. An additional charge of vehicular assault was filed also for injuries sustained by the driver of a vehicle that collided with the defendantâ€™s disabled car. Wittman was arraigned on the amended information and entered a not guilty plea. He is currently charged with Vehicular Homicide, two counts of Vehicular Assault and one count of Felony Hit and Run. Wittman remains in jail on $200,000 bail pending a case setting hearing on Febr. 5 at the Maleng Regional Justice Center.]]>
