I-82 rollover accident sends man to hospital

A 20-year-old Grandview man sustained injuries early this morning as the result of a one-vehicle accident on I-82.

Washington State Patrol officials report Jesus Brito, 20, of Grandview fell asleep at the wheel while driving a 1997 Nissan Altima eastbound on I-82 at about 4:30 a.m. Friday morning. WSP troopers say the Nissan left the roadway, near milepost 64, and rolled in the median.

Brito was taken to Sunnyside Community Hospital by a third party.

His car was totaled in the accident.

Negligent driving charges are pending against the Grandview man.
