Kennewick man swerves to avoid debris, crashes

PASCO — A Kennewick man was injured early this morning, Feb. 11, after his vehicle overturned along U.S. Highway 395 north of the city.

William J. Robbins, 56, was transported to a Richland hospital following the 2:37 a.m. crash near Milepost 24; his condition was not released.

According to the Washington State Patrol, Robbins was southbound in a 2007 Subaru Legacy when he swerved to avoid debris in the roadway, overcorrected and flipped the car.

He was wearing a seatbelt and neither drugs nor alcohol are believed to be factors in the crash, the patrol said, citing the cause of the incident "inattention."

Charges may be pending, the patrol said.

Cassaday Beeline 1 towed the vehicle from the crash scene.
