2 Tacoma men injured in Interstate 90 crash

Two people were injured in a three-car accident on Interstate 90, west of Ellensburg on Saturday afternoon, the Washington State Patrol said.

One of the injured, identified as a 28-year-old Tacoma man, was airlifted to Yakima Regional Cardiac and Medical Center for treatment of head bruises and cuts.

The hospital said Sunday the man, Ben Brooksby, was not listed as a patient.

Brooksby was a passenger in a 1996 Subaru Impreza headed westbound on I-90 about 3:30 p.m. when the vehicle drifted onto the shoulder of the road.

The vehicle, driven by Nathan Brooksby, 22, also of Tacoma, overcorrected and struck a westbound vehicle in the outside lane. The Impreza ran off the roadway into the median, rolling several times, according to a patrol accident memorandum. Nathan Brooksby sustained cuts and bruises and was taken to Kittitas Valley Community Hospital for treatment.

The driver of the second vehicle, Charles Hyatt, 72, of Mesa, Ariz., was not injured.
