CLINTON, WA (December 12, 2019) – A man identified as 47-year-old Corey Simmons died in a car crash around 6 p.m. on Friday, December 6.
According to the police, a silver 2017 Nissan Sentra veered off a road in rural Washington State on Friday evening. After that, it went down a steep embankment. Then it hit several trees and came to rest.
The driver, Corey Simmons, was unconscious, police stated. His daughters, 4-year-old twins, checked on him. Then, the police said, the girls were able to get out of their seats. After that, they crawled out of a broken window at the back of the vehicle. Shoeless, they crawled 100 feet up a ravine to the road.
There, the girls stood on the side of Bob Galbreath Road, a two-lane roadway on Whidbey Island. Then a woman driving by saw them and stopped, police stated.
The Good Samaritan put the girls in her vehicle to keep them warm and dialed 911.
