(Ephrata, WA) Two Ephrata men were injured in a rollover crash Tuesday night near Ephrata.

Investigators say the driver, Michael Jason Clark, 18 of Ephrata, was driving a 1997 Ford Excursion southbound in the 11000 block of Dodson Road Northwest when the vehicle drifted off the west side of the road. Clark overcorrected causing the vehicle to roll over off the roadway, coming to rest on its roof.

Clark and his passenger, 18-year-old Tyler Purcell of Ephrata, were not wearing seatbelts. Clark was partially thrown from the vehicle and pinned beneath it for nearly an hour before rescuers were notified. Clark was seriously injured and flown by Northwest MedStar to Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee.

Purcell received bumps, cuts and bruises, and was taken by ambulance to Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake.

The investigation continues, but early indications are texting while driving may have caused this collision.
