A Maple Valley man is facing vehicular assault charges after a potential alcohol-related rollover that injured himself and two passengers on Friday in Kirkland.
Taylor Dewater, 25, allegedly failed to negotiate a curve on the I-405 off-ramp at exit 17 around 10 p.m.. The BMW, which was traveling northbound, rolled and came to a rest upside down near the intersection of N.E. 70th and 116th Avenue N.E.
The Washington State Patrol believes drugs or alcohol are a factor in the crash, however the investigation is still ongoing. The State Patrol confirmed one occupant was trapped in the car after it rolled.
Dewater, another Maple Valley man and Seattle man were taken to Overlake Hospital in Bellevue. State Patrol confirmed at least one of the three suffered critical injuries. All three were using seat belts.
