Driver Seriously Injured After Being Ejected In Crash By Cle Elum
An Ellensburg man has serious injuries after being ejected in a single vehicle crash on State Route 970 four miles east of Cle Elum Monday afternoon.
Troopers say a 2002 Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by 40-year-old William Savage was eastbound when it crossed into the westbound side and then went off the road, rolled and stopped 20 from the shoulder in a grass area.
Savage was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected during the crash.
He was taken to Kittitas Valley Hospital with injuries.
He was also charged with driving with a suspended or revoked license, crossing the center line and failure to have a restraint.
Alcohol or drugs were not involved in the crash which took place at about 3:50pm Monday.
