Pierce County ME’s office identifies two teens killed in fiery crash

GRAHAM, Wash. -- The Pierce County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the two teenagers who were killed in a fiery crash with a semi Tuesday afternoon.

Gaven Seastrum, 16, and Angel Collins, 15, both of Graham, died when the vehicle they were in collided with a semi.

A Bethel School District spokesman said the teens were both students at Graham-Kapowsin High School.

"We were devastated to learn this and our thoughts and prayers are with the families involved during this horrific time," Douglas Boyles said. "We are also thinking of all the GK students and staff that knew and were friends with these two students. Counselors are currently available at all district summer school sites to support students as needed."

Troopers said the semi was traveling north on SR-161 in Graham when the vehicle the teens were in were trying to take a left turn on 244th Street E. The vehicle the teens were in burst into flames.

The road was closed for several hours while police investigated.
