A young driver died as a result of a single-car accident 10 miles north of Nespelem Sunday afternoon.

The Washington State Patrol said the car, driven by Thomas C. Jacobs, 17, Tonasket, was going too fast for road conditions in the area.

The driver was taken to Coulee Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The WSP said the 1996 Honda Civic was southbound about 3:17 p.m. on highway 155 near milepost 55, when the driver failed to negotiate a curve, lost control and struck a tree.
