OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — No one was hurt when a 1995 Toyota Camry rolled over on U.S. Highway 101 near the turnoff to the Storm King Ranger Station, said Sam Phillips, chief of Clallam County Fire District No. 2.

The wreck was reported to firefighters at 10:14 p.m. Sunday, Phillips said.

A 17-year-old Sequim girl, who was unidentified by the fire department, was reportedly driving eastbound on the highway when the tires of the car hit gravel and the car skidded into a ditch and flipped onto its top.

Both the driver and an unidentified passenger, 16, who was unhurt, had climbed out of it by the time firefighters arrived, Phillips said.

Their conditions were evaluated ,and the two were turned over to their parents, the fire chief said.

Firefighters cleared the scene at 11:26 p.m.

Both occupants were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash and no airbags deployed, Phillips said.

Fire District No. 2 responded with one engine and eight firefighters. A park ranger also assisted.
