Police Say Drinking and Driving Causes Accident on I-82

SUNNYSIDE, Wash.- Washington state troopers say alcohol is to blame for a one car accident on I-82 in Sunnyside. Troopers say 19-year-old Mireya Carona was under the influence and wasn't paying attention as she headed west on the highway.

She veered to the left, and then overcorrected, sending her car into a roll. Carona and her two passengers were taken to Sunnyside Memorial Hospital. Nobody in the car was wearing a seatbelt.
