Driver rolls car along Pacific Highway South on Kent’s West Hill

Three hurt in single-vehicle crash on Wednesday morning

Three men suffered non-life threatening injuries after a driver reportedly speeding along Pacific Highway South near South 260th Street on Kent’s West Hill rolled his car.

The crash occurred at about 11:04 a.m. Wednesday in the 26200 block of Pacific Highway South, according to an email from Kent Police spokesman Jarod Kasner. Portions of the highway were closed for about an hour.

The driver, 21, of Federal Way, and his two passengers were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Kasner said. The man was driving a 2011 Honda Civic.

Preliminary information determined that speed and the driver’s actions caused the crash, Kasner said.

“It’s still under investigation as the traffic investigators process the information gained from the scene and witnesses,” Kasner said. “The driver was cooperative at the time of the accident.”
