A driver who lost control of his car on Highway 27 south of Spokane Valley early Saturday morning is being charged with vehicular assault, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Johnathon M. Norris, 21, was driving a 2006 Subaru Impreza north just after 3:30 a.m. today when he lost control of his car, went off the road, hit a culvert and rolled. The car came to a stop on its top. Norris is believed to have been intoxicated and speeding at the time of the crash, the Washington State Patrol said.

Both Norris and his passenger, 18-year-old Marcus D. Balliet, were taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center for treatment of their injuries.
