EPHRATA, WA - Investigators have determined a 10-year-old boy was behind the wheel of a pickup truck that crashed into a canal south of Coulee City, killing his father and 8-year-old brother.
    
The Grant County Sheriff's Office says Scott Kolves, 45, was teaching his 10-year-old son to drive when they were on a fishing trip March 30. The man grabbed the wheel when the boy had trouble but couldn't prevent the truck from leaving the canal road.
    
Nearby fishermen saved the 10-year-old and his 12-year-old brother. Eight-year-old Korey Kolves was found downstream and paramedics could not revive him. His funeral was Saturday.
    
Authorities are still looking for Scott Kolves' body. Kolves worked as a security guard at Ephrata High School and also worked with special needs children.
