April 19, 2018

Journey Tueller competes in the discus at a recent track meet for the Cardinals.

A trip to catch a school bus to a track meet turned tragic early last Saturday morning.

Washington State Patrol troopers say an SUV with four Medical Lake High School student-athletes on board failed to stop at the intersection of Wood Road and U.S. Highway 2 and was struck by an eastbound pickup, killing 17-year-old passenger Journey R. Tueller.

The other occupants of the 2011 KIA Sorento, 17-year-old driver Lauren H. Gross, and passengers 15-year-old Laci R. Sica and 14-year-old Savannah S. Sutton, were taken to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane with serious injuries.
