Details are still coming, but around 11am a car accident near Edison in Kennewick resulted in a car flipping, and coming to a rest at an angle against a telephone pole.

According to sources, two 14-year-old girls were in the car without parental permission.  They apparently had taken the car for a joyride. This information has not yet been confirmed by authorities, but Newstalk 870 learned this from witnesses at scene.
