twinsSEATTLE — The second of twin 17-year-old girls involved in a deadly crash on Halloween near Anacortes died Monday at Harborview Medical Center, authorities said.

Janesah Goheen, of Oak Harbor, died of her injuries 11 days after the collision on State Route 20.  She was driving a 1993 Acura.

Her twin, Janeah Goheen, 17, who was a passenger in the back seat of the vehicle, was declared dead at the scene Oct. 31.

Their friend Alysha Pickler, 18, of Oak Harbor, who was riding in the front seat, was injured but is recovering.

Ian Blackstock, 52, of Oak Harbor, was arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault.

The Washington State Patrol said Blackstock was driving a 2006 Ford Mustang and his car began to fish-tail on wet pavement as he approached the intersection of SR 20 with Gibraltar Road and crossed into the oncoming lane, striking the Acura driven by Janesah Goheen.

      I would MUCH rather prefer putting the POS in the same room as the twins father, LOCKING THE DOOR, and giving the father COMPLETE AND TOTAL amnesty for whatever he decided to do!

    Looks like the accused reckless driver has been to court several times in the past, but it takes time to find out why. He could be a habitual criminal. I agree, life in prison should be his sentence. What a self centered jerk.

    Washington still has some of the most lax DUI laws in the nation, he may get 2-3 years and a fine of about $1000. I believe that if you drive while impaired and kill someone then you deserve to go to prison for the rest of your life. Since I don't see our elected officials doing it (unless they made sure to exempt themselves) perhaps an initiative is in order (that would not exempt them)
