Accident claims lives of two young Muckleshoots

Correction/Clarification: Edward Marsette is a member of the Chippewa Cree Tribe of Montana, not the Muckleshoot Tribe.

A deadly accident has claimed the lives of two young members of the Muckleshoot Tribe of Washington, with another young tribal member accused of causing the crash.

The accident occurred early Wednesday morning. A car carrying six people -- most of them tribal members -- flipped over and burst into flames.

Edward Marsette, a Chippewa Cree tribal member who lives near the scene, was able to save three people from the crash. But two other Muckleshoots -- Richard Theodore Wilson Jr. and Michael Eugene Paul-Daniels, both 20 -- died. The other passengers suffered injuries.

Adrian Everybody Talks About is accused of being drunk while driving the car. He turned 18 three days before the crash and is awaiting charges of vehicular homicide. He made his first court appearance on Friday afternoon. His mother said he wasn't behind the wheel.
