Last updated 2/17/2021 at 8:44am

An Omak teenager has died, and a young man is charged with vehicular homicide and driving under the influence after a one-pickup rollover accident on SR-155 in the middle of the night.

The name of the 15-year-old girl who died at the scene of crash was not released.

According to the Washington State Patrol report, she was not wearing a seatbelt when the northbound 1998 Ford F-150 swerved on the highway at milepost 69, where the driver overcorrected, then rolled over on the right shoulder shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday morning.

The driver, Martin T. Stanley, 20, of Omak, is facing charges of vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, and driving while under the influence, the WSP said.

Stanley, and another passenger, Michael L. Timentwa, 18, of Omak, were each wearing seatbelts and were taken to Mid Valley Hospital.

The highway to Omak was closed from there to Nespelem due to the wreck and WSP investigation, an alert sent by the Washington State Dept. of Transportation said.
