Grandfather, two young grandchildren recovering after Pasco rollover crash

PASCO, Wash. — A grandfather and his two young grandchildren are recovering after Pasco police said they were involved in a rollover accident on Thursday afternoon.

According to a Facebook post by the department, the family was driving east in a pickup truck on Three Rivers and Rd. 76 when they were struck by another vehicle.

At the time of the accident, officials said no one in the pickup was wearing their seatbelts, causing the 12-year-old to be ejected from the car and the five-year-old to bounce around inside.

“Both children sustained minor injuries, and the driver had serious injuries,” the post said.

It is unclear what those injuries are at this time.

Pasco police said this is a good reminder to always buckle up whenever you get inside of a vehicle.
