An Olympia man was hurt Wednesday after he lost control of his vehicle and crashed on southbound I-5 in Tumwater, according to the Washington State Patrol.

About 4:30 a.m., the vehicle, thought to be traveling at a high rate of speed, was headed south on the freeway when it rolled and wound up in a ditch near the Trosper Road overpass at I-5, Trooper Johnna Batiste said Thursday.

The driver lost control, she said.

The 44-year-old man was then taken to St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma.
