La Push woman hospitalized after rolling her car on US Highway 101

A 44-year-old La Push woman was injured Saturday morning in Grays Harbor County after she fell asleep at the wheel of her Ford Expedition, according to a Washington State Patrol incident report.

About 4 a.m. Saturday, the woman was southbound on U.S. Highway 101, about 24 miles of north of Hoquiam, when she apparently fell asleep at the wheel.

Her vehicle left the road and then she woke up, over-correcting to the left and then again to the right. That sudden movement resulted in the vehicle rolling 2  1/2 times before landing in the northbound lane, according to the report.

The woman was later taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital. She faces a possible charge of negligent driving in the second degree.
