Flowers now mark where Kaye Hall, 60, of Bonney Lake was killed Wednesday morning when a car crashed through the window at the Bill Severyns Farmers Insurance agency on Logan Avenue in Renton.

Hall was the office manager at the agency.

Just before 11 a.m. on Wednesday, an 80-year-old woman was parking her car to visit another business in the small office complex at Logan Avenue North and Airport Way. For some reason, she crashed through the window, pinning Hall under her car.

The driver, whose name wasn't released, was not seriously injured.

The investigation is continuing, which could take weeks, according to Terri Vickers, a spokeswoman for the Renton Police Department.

No decision will be made as to whether charges will be filed until the investigation is complete.
