A Yakima man was hurt when he fell asleep behind the wheel, drove off Interstate 82 and crashed near Prosser.
Devon A. Veliz, 23, was headed east in a Mercury Sable at 2:52 a.m. Tuesday when he apparently fell asleep about a mile west of Prosser.
The car veered off the highway, traveled down the hill between the two bridges over Wine Country Road, hit an embankment and rolled.
Veliz was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center. His condition wasn’t immediately available.
