KITTITAS COUNTY, WA – A 19-year-old driver and her 22-year-old passenger were injured in a rollover crash Sunday evening in what Washington State Patrol suspects to be a DUI accident.
The accident occurred around 5:45 p.m. on eastbound Interstate 82 just south of Ellensburg, according to KOMO News. Troopers found the vehicle, a blue Honda Civic, completely flipped over about 100 feet away from the interstate.
The two people in the car were transferred to Yakima Virginia Mason Hospital. When she is released from the hospital, the driver, whose name has not been released, will face a vehicular assault charge.
WSP believes the driver was impaired by drugs and alcohol and overcorrected after veering out of the lane, causing the car to roll.
