Man pleads not guilty in fatal Bonney Lake crash

A 20-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide in connection with a three-car crash in Bonney Lake that killed his passenger.

Kamryn Fisher also pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of vehicular assault and reckless endangerment stemming from the Jan. 26 wreck near 64th Street East and 218th Avenue East.

One of Fisher’s passengers, Thomas Randall Jr., 19, died in the accident. Police said he was wearing a seat belt but died at the scene.

Pierce County prosecutors allege Fisher was driving about 65 miles per hour in a 40 mph zone when he tried to go around another vehicle, lost control of his car, overcorrected and slid into oncoming traffic.

His car sideswiped another car, ripped off a rear wheel and kept sliding into the intersection. A third vehicle T-boned Fisher’s car, according to charging papers.

A second passenger broke a leg and suffered a head laceration. Fisher suffered a broken pelvis and collarbone and a serious head injury.

A judge ordered Fisher released on his own recognizance but ordered him not to have contact with the surviving passenger.
