KENT, Wash. (AP) — Police say a 16-year-old boy driving to school was critically injured in a collision Tuesday morning in Kent.

Police initially reported the boy died, but Sgt. Robert Constant later said he was in critical condition on life support, awaiting final disposition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

The Kentridge High School student collided with a car making a left turn near the school. The teen’s car then collided with a third car in the intersection.

The other two drivers, a 49-year-old woman and a 58-year-old woman, were both taken to hospitals and are in stable condition.

A Renton police officer who came across the accident started life-saving efforts on the boy until medics arrived.
