An Eatonville man who huffed gas and was responsible for a wreck that hurt his girlfriend was sentenced Tuesday to a year and a day in prison.
Jarrid Witko Roberts, 31, pleaded guilty to vehicular assault, and received a low-end sentence.
Investigators said Roberts inhaled compressed gas to get high and blacked out behind the wheel May 10 south of Elk Plain on state Route 7.
The car swerved into an oncoming lane, hit a guardrail, went down an embankment, flipped over and landed on its front.
