DUI Accident Leaves One Dead & One in Jail

Posted: Updated:

COLEMAN CANYON, Wash.--A drunk driving accident in Kittitas County leaves one man dead and another in jail.

Kittitas County Undersheriff Clayton Myers said Nicholas Elliot, 26, was driving drunk on Rue Road in the Coleman Canyon just north of Ellensburg Saturday night when his pickup truck swerved off the road, hit a culvert and flipped over.

19-year-old Kory Huss of Ellensburg died at the scene.

Myers said seven people were in the truck, including Elliot's three young children, and none were wearing seatbelts.

Elliot is facing charges of vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, and reckless endangerment.

KNDO was able to reach Huss' family; they did not want to comment.
