An Olympia man is accused of vehicular assault after allegedly driving into a tree, injuring himself and two passengers.
Chad A. Berry, 26, was driving a 2002 Toyota Celica east on the 19000 block of Yelm Highway at 9:24 p.m. Thursday, according to a Washington State Patrol news release.
The release said the car left the roadway and hit a tree.
Berry and passenger Ryan C. Boyd, 25, were injured and taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital. The second passenger, Jared G. Boyd, 27, was also injured and was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center.
Speed appeared to be a factor. The release said drugs or alcohol also were involved.
