Speed blamed in Finley rollover

A 38-year-old Richland man is in a Spokane hospital after flipping his car in Finley on Wednesday night.

Ryan Kelly was driving a Nissan Maxima north on the Highway 397 at 9:30 p.m. when he tried to pass another vehicle just south of Bowles Road and lost control, the Washington State Patrol reported.

Kelly’s car rolled and ended up on the southbound shoulder. He wasn’t buckled up, the state patrol said.

Troopers said speed was a factor in the wreck.

He was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland and then transferred to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, authorities said.

He was in satisfactory condition Thursday morning at the Spokane hospital.
