PORT ANGELES — Two passengers who were riding in a truck that rolled over on Marine Drive early Friday were recovering at Harborview Medical Center on Sunday.
Zachary A. Fletcher, the 21-year-old driver of the Ford F-350 that rolled at about 2:20 a.m., sustained minor injuries, Port Angeles police said.
Passenger Naomi Kuykendall, 19, of Port Angeles was listed in serious condition Sunday, but her condition was improving, said a spokesperson for the Seattle hospital.
Jacob Torey, 18, of Port Angeles was listed in satisfactory condition Sunday.
Both had been listed Friday in serious condition in Harborview’s intensive care unit, hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg said.
A witness told 9-1-1 dispatchers that Fletcher was driving at a high rate of speed before the crash in the 1700 block of West Marine Drive near the Hill Street intersection.
Police Sgt. Josh Powless said Fletcher was evaluated for signs of impairment after the collision. Police obtained a search warrant to draw a sample of Fletcher’s blood, Powless said.
Fletcher was booked into the Clallam County jail for investigation of two counts of vehicular assault and driving under the influence of alcohol. He is being held without bail.
Fletcher is expected to make his first court appearance today.
Port Angeles Police Department and Fire Department personnel arrived to find private citizens providing first aid to those who were in the truck, which came to a rest on its side, Powless said.
Kuykendall and Torey were taken to Olympic Medical Center before they were airlifted to Harborview.
A Clallam County Sheriff’s Office collision investigator responded to assist with investigation.
