Two people were hospitalized and another booked into the Pierce County Jail on Sunday after their car went off Interstate 5 and flipped, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The three are 21 and police say drugs or alcohol were likely involved in the wreck, the State Patrol said.

The 2010 Ford Mustang was traveling south on I-5’s 56th Street exit about 2 a.m. when it left the road and came to a stop upside down in a ditch.

The passengers — a woman from Surprise, Arizona, and a man from Tacoma — were taken to Tacoma General Hospital. The man was not wearing a seat belt.

The driver — a Tacoma resident — was booked into jail. The car was impounded.

The incident remains under investigation.
