SEDRO WOOLLEY, Wash. – The teen suspect in last month’s deadly head-on crash near Sedro Woolley is now behind bars.

Troopers arrested 19-year-old Alfredo Navarro Jr. Friday night after he returned to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

He showed up seeking help for injuries he suffered in the May 23 crash that killed three people, including 21 year old Megan Brown from Bellingham, and left two others critically hurt.

Quentin Baxter was riding in the back of the car that Navarro was driving.

 

Troopers say they found alcohol in the car and they believe Navarro was drunk.

Navarro had been released from Harborview last weekend before police could arrest him.

He’s now in Skagit County Jail, held on a million dollar bail.
