— A Kennewick woman said she rolled her car on Highway 240 after over-correcting to avoid another car that drifted into her lane in the Kennewick after driving through the double roundabout on Tuesday.

Tracy Walton, 43, of Kennewick, was driving her 2002 Pontiac Grand Am through the roundabout at 11:30 a.m.

Walton said she was driving on Columbia Drive toward westbound Highway 240 after driving in the outside lane of double roundabout.

She said there was traffic in the inside lane and that another vehicle moved into her lane. She drove onto the shoulder and when she realized she was off the road, she overcorrected, she said.

Her car began fishtailing and she lost control, she said.

The other vehicle that moved into her lane did not stop, she said. She said she was not injured.

The rollover was near the east of entrance to Columbia Park.
