Flat tire causes rollover on I-82

A 17-year-old boy from Sunnyside sustained injuries in a vehicle rollover accident last Saturday afternoon on I-82.

WSP troopers say Manuel Osorio-Gomez of Sunnyside, 17, was westbound on I-82 Saturday at about 3:45 p.m. in a 2004 Ford Ranger pick-up. The left rear tire incurred a flat near the Zillah off-ramp, say troopers, causing the motorist to lose control. The pick-up entered the median and rolled.

Osorio-Gomez was transported to the Toppenish hospital for medical treatment.

The teen's pick-up truck was totaled as a result of the accident.
