A Kennewick teenager seriously hurt in a car crash last weekend remained hospitalized in Richland on Tuesday.
Jacob Cole Matyear, 15, was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center late Saturday night after the car he was driving crashed into a tree.
Kennewick police said Matyear remains at Kadlec but his family has requested that the hospital not release information about his condition.
Police were called to the intersection of 45th Avenue and Beech Street at 11:20 p.m. Saturday after neighbors reported hearing a crash.
Matyear allegedly was speeding when he lost control of the Kia sedan, crashed through 50-feet of fencing and slammed into a tree, said police. He was alone in the car.
Police say their investigation shows the teen was not wearing a seat belt.
