Two people were injured in a car accident that was reportedly caused by a falling boulder, according to news reports.

The accident occurred around 12:30 p.m. when a 65-year-old man from Des Moines was reportedly driving a 2001 Toyota Camry along Interstate 82. As he was traveling with a 47-year-old passenger from Des Moines m a boulder reportedly rolled down the hillside into the road and struck the Camry. The car was struck by the large rock about six miles west of Selah on Interstate 82, injuring both the driver and passenger.

The victims were transported to Yakima Regional Medical and Cardiac Center after the collision, but were released shortly after. It is unclear what injuries the two people sustained or their current condition.

The Camry was totaled in the crash, according to news reports.

As a Wenatchee car accident attorney, I’m saddened to hear about this incident. I’m glad to hear the victims in this crash weren’t more seriously injured and required a longer hospital stay. I hope Washington State Patrol investigators are able to work to determine all the factors in the collision so a crash like this may potentially be avoided in the future.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, contact a personal injury lawyer in Wenatchee.
