Driver safe after rollover accident

A female driver was involved in a non-injury single-vehicle rollover accident this morning on Northeast 124th Street and the northbound Interstate 405 onramp.

According to on-scene Washington State Patrol trooper Christopher Klukas, at about 8:50 a.m., the female was driving on 124th, missed the onramp and tried to correct her route across the sidewalk (near the median), which led to the rollover. Her vehicle was sitting upside down on the onramp when passersby stopped and helped her out of the car.

At 9:09 a.m., the driver was safe and sitting in the back of a patrol car while the scene was being cleared. She wasn’t transported to a hospital and wasn’t under arrest, Klukas said.
