A one-car rollover accident that involved seven people, two of whom were riding in the trunk, ended with no injuries.
Last Thursday at 9:42 p.m. the Washington State Patrol was called to the intersection of Yakima Valley Highway and East Alexander Road for a one-car accident that involved seven people, none over the age of 20.
According to the State Patrol, the 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by 17-year-old Mithz Servin was headed eastbound at a high rate of speed when it passed another vehicle on the road. The driver lost control and rolled the vehicle as it re-entered the lane of travel. The State Patrol has noted that driving too fast was likely the cause of the accident.
Servin and the six other passengers in the car were uninjured, although two of the passengers, a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy were riding in the trunk. Those occupants riding in the car were all wearing their seatbelts. The car was towed from the scene by Sunnyside Towing.
According to the State Patrol, Servin is being charged with reckless driving and having no valid operator's license, while the father of 17-year-old Irome Murillo, one of the car's occupants, is being cited for allowing a minor to operate a vehicle.
