Tacoma man who fell asleep while driving injured in I-90 rollover crash

Yakima Herald-Republic, Wash.

A Tacoma man was injured in a single-vehicle rollover crash on Interstate 90 late Friday after he fell asleep at the wheel, the Washington State Patrol reports.

Dennis Ross, 51, was driving a 2005 Ford Focus eastbound on I-90 about 7 miles west of Ellensburg at 10:44 p.m. when the vehicle left the roadway to the right, rolled and came to a rest on its top, according to a State Patrol news release.

Ross, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken to KVH Hospital. His condition was not immediately available.

He was charged with driving with a suspended license, second offense negligent driving and no insurance, the report stated. Drugs or alcohol were not factors in the crash.
