RICHLAND, Wash.—A late night car accident takes the life of a 29-year-old Richland man and sends another to the hospital.

Washington State Patrol says at 11:00pm Friday 18-year-old Cody Samuel Myers, from Kennewick, was driving on the 7500 block of West Van Giesen when Justin Lee Fry swerved into Myers' lane and smashed head-on into his car.

Police say Justin Fry died before State Patrol got to the accident.  Myers was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.

We're told Myers was wearing his seatbelt and is now in stable condition at Kadlec Regional Medical Center.

Washington State Patrol says they are still investigation if alcohol or drugs were involved.  The Benton County Coroner tells us the toxicology report could take several weeks to show results.
