Child thrown from van in rollover collision

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A child is ejected from a van as it roles off of Highway 12 near 40th Avenue. It happened just before three this afternoon. 

Troopers say the driver of the mini-van, 60-year-old Maria Medina of Yakima apparently missed the exit, rolled and hit another vehicle. 

Two children were riding in the van, their ages range from seven to twelve. Troopers say the younger one was thrown from the vehicle and should have been in a booster seat. His injuries appear to be minor.
