7-Year-Old Boy Fatally Injured in Single-Car Accident near Tremont Street
GORST, WA (November 26, 2018) – A boy was killed Monday evening following a solo-vehicle crash near Tremont Street. The victim was later identified as 7-year-old Andy Calmo Jeronimo, a resident of Bremerton.
According to the Washington State Patrol, the incident happened at about 6:30 PM. A green 1999 Toyota Sienna minivan was heading west on Highway 16 when it lost control and struck a guardrail.
The child, who was unrestrained in his booster seat, suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Four other children, a 34-year-old woman, and the 30-year-old driver were all secured in their seatbelts and did not sustain injuries in the crash.
Investigators believe that the minivan was traveling too fast for the wet and rainy roads at the time of the accident. Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is asked to call the WSP at (360) 473-0141. Additional information will be released following the conclusion of the investigation.
