FOLLOWUP: Ambaum crash suspect charged; fundraiser launched for victims’ children

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has just filed five felony charges against 26-year-old Irene Plancarte-Bustos, arrested after the Ambaum crash that killed two people on Tuesday. The South Delridge resident is charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, two of hit-run, one of negligent driving. The charging documents say her 3 1/2-year-old son was in her car when she hit the victims’ car in the 11800 block of Ambaum, going about 60 mph in a 35 mph zone. He was not hurt. Deputies found her in the nearby mini-mart parking lot; she had not called 911 nor attempted to return to the crash scene, they said. Plancarte-Bustos, who has no known criminal record, remains in jail, bail set at $250,000.

Meantime, the victims are identified as a West Seattle couple, 38-year-old Kamel Dupuis-Perez and 35-year-old Lauren Dupuis-Perez, parents of two young children. Friends and family have set up this crowdfunding page to ensure the children’s educational (and other) expenses are covered.
