A Yelm-area man in his mid-20s died early Monday when the vehicle he was a passenger in left the roadway and rolled.
The crash occurred at 6:51 a.m. in the 2400 block of Reservation Road Southeast, said Thurston County Sheriff’s Sgt. Carla Carter.
The vehicle was traveling north when the driver attempted to pass a slower vehicle and lost control. The driver was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
The driver and passenger were wearing seat belts, Carter said.
