The Washington State Patrol has identified the victim of Sunday, April 9’s fatal accident on I-5 n Kent as Romel J. Fiesterman, 27, of Seattle.
Troopers say that the victim’s vehicle was traveling northbound on I-5 when they attempted to change lanes just north of the interchange with SR 516 (Kent Des Moines Road; map below).
A vehicle adjacent to theirs honked their horn to notify them not to encroach.
The victim swerved back over, lost control and rolled over, striking a tree on the right shoulder and being ejected.
Feisterman was not wearing a seatbelt at the time.
