Two people were injured Sunday in Eatonville after a suspected drunken driver lost control and rolled his car several times, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The accident happened about 6:45 a.m. in the 45880 block of northbound state Route 7.

Troopers said a 39-year-old Mineral man tried to pass a vehicle in a no-passing zone and rolled his Ford Escape. The car landed on the passenger side.

The driver and his passenger, a 40-year-old Eatonville woman, were taken to Madigan Army Medical Condition with unknown injuries.

Alcohol, excessive speed and illegal passing caused the crash, troopers said.
