From staff reports

Brandon Abraham, 27, of Spokane was airlifted to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane with serious injuries after being ejected from a sport utility vehicle during a rollover accident on U.S. Highway 195 near Steptoe Friday, according to Pullman Radio News.

Pullman Radio News reported Washington State Patrol troopers said 22-year-old John McConnell of Spokane was driving north with Abraham and a third passenger and made a bad pass in which he lost control, causing his SUV to roll several times. Abraham, who was asleep and not wearing a seatbelt at the time, was ejected from the vehicle during the roll.

McConnell was uninjured and the third passenger suffered minor injuries, according to Pullman Radio News. They reportedly both had seatbelts on and drugs and alcohol were not involved.
