Olympia, WA (December 3, 2020) – On Wednesday, Garrett Miller, an 18-year-old Tenino man died in a pedestrian accident on Littlerock Road.
The fatal crash took place around noon between 113th Avenue and 93rd Avenue.
Apparently, a vehicle struck and killed Miller, an employee of a private company who was cleaning up an oil spill in a coned-off area.
Deputies arrived within minutes. However, Miller already died at the scene.
The involved driver, a 74-year-old man, stayed on the scene.
