Man, child dead after car goes over embankment in Renton

Renton firefighters say a man and a young girl died after their car went over an embankment in Renton early Saturday morning.

Renton Police Commander David Leibman says just after 8:30 a.m. they received a call reporting sounds of a crash in the 3000 block of Royal Hills Road.

When crews arrived at the scene, firefighters found a truck that had driven off the roadway and into a ravine. The bodies of a 20-year-old man and a seven-year-old girl, later determined to be the driver's sister, were located. 

Police say both victims had been ejected from the vehicle. Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash. 

The crash was under investigation by officials.
