Negligent driving causes rollover near Elma

A Bothell woman may face a negligent driving charge after her car rolled over on State Route 8 just east of Elma early Thursday morning, the Washington State Patrol reported.

Sydne G. Rice, 19, was driving westbound at about 2:20 a.m. Thursday when she swerved to the right, then over-corrected, causing the car to roll four times before coming to rest on its side in the center median.

She was injured in the crash and transported to Summit Pacific Medical Center in Elma, where she was treated and released Thursday.

The State Patrol memo cites Rice’s speed as the cause of the crash, and says she is likely to be charged with negligent driving.
