— A 27-year-old woman driving under the influence rolled a Chevy Impala early Friday morning on Highway 395 near Pasco, according to the Washington State Patrol.

A passenger in the car, Nicole M. Flaucher, 31, of Kennewick, was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland following the wreck, state patrol said. She was treated and later released.

Mallory Anne Martinez, of Connell, was driving five passengers in the Impala around 2:30 a.m. when she hit a guardrail while exiting the highway and flipped the car, state patrol said. No one else in the car was injured.

Martinez was apparently under the influence when the wreck took place, state patrol said. The Impala was totaled and towed from the scene.
