NEAR KENNEWICK, Wash. -- A man is being treated for serious injuries after a rollover accident south of Kennewick. It happened Monday just after 6:30 p.m. on Locust Grove Road near Interstate 82.

Benton County Sheriff's Deputies say the man failed to negotiate a curve and rolled at least two times.  He was ejected from his Dodge Ram pick-up and landed in a field about 15-yards from it.

Beer was found in the truck and near it, but investigators don't know if he had been drinking before the accident.

He was airlifted by a Medstar helicopter to Kadlec Medical Center.

So far his name hasn't been released, but his truck has Montana plates.
