PROSSER, WA — A 3-year-old child was injured in a rollover car crash early Tuesday in Prosser, according to KOMO News.
Troopers and medics arrived around 2:30 a.m. at the site of the crash along State Route 22, an area three miles west of Prosser in Benton County.
Authorities found a wrecked car stuck to the railroad tracks. The 3-year-old child and a 21-year-old woman who had been driving were both injured in the collision, and were rushed to a nearby hospital.
The Washington State Patrol says the driver of the vehicle is currently being investigated for possible DUI and reckless endangerment.
An early investigation revealed that the driver was traveling west along SR 22 when the car veered off the roadway, rolled over, and eventually came to a stop on the railroad tracks.
No other information has been released about the relationship between the woman and the child.
