Driver of rear-ended car could face charges

The driver of the car that was rear-ended Friday on Highway 395 south of Connell could face charges of driving under the influence, the Washington State Patrol said.

WSP reported that the 1995 Ford Probe driven by Juan C. Lomeli Reyes, 18, of Connell, the man suspected of DUI, overturned after being struck from behind by a 2006 Kia Sorento driven by James M. Whitmore, 55, of Kennewick.

Both men were treated and later released from area hospitals. Both cars were totaled, said WSP.
