Posted by Unknown | Mar 10, 2014 | 0 Comments

The DUI suspect accused of driving under the influence and crashing into another car, killing two high school seniors, plead not guilty in court today.

The tragic car accident occurred on June 9th on Interstate 5 in Tukwila and killed high school students Derek King and Nick Hodgins.  Officials said that the suspect, 50-year old Alexander Peder, had a blood alcohol content level twice the legal limit at the time of the accident.

Peder was charged with two counts of vehicular homicide and driving under the influence.

Our utmost sympathies go out to the family and friends of Derek King and Nick Hodgins.
