The driver of the vehicle, said WSP troopers, was 34-year-old Migel Zaragoza of Mabton. He was airlifted to Kadlec Medical Center in the Tri-Cities, then airlifted to Yakima Regional Hospital.
A passenger in his vehicle, Monica W. Olivarez, 31, of Mabton, also was injured. She was transported to Kadlec Medical Center.
The vehicle was totaled as a result of the rollover.
