Two men were injured late Saturday night in a rollover crash on state Route 167 in Kent.

A report from the Washington State Patrol says a 2012 Chevrolet Express van carrying three people was traveling southbound SR167 at 11:30 p.m. Saturday when it left the roadway at South 277th Street and rolled over.

The driver of the van, a 60-year-old man from Shippensburg, Pa., was taken to Auburn Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries. One of his passengers, a 21-year-old from Hampshire, W.Va., was transported to Harborview Medical Center.

A third passenger identified only as a juvenile from West Virginia was not listed as injured.

The State Patrol says it’s unknown if the three were wearing seat belts. Investigators believe drugs or alcohol contributed to the crash.
