A Pasco woman was injured in a single-vehicle rollover crash just south of the Blue Bridge on Tuesday morning.

Melissa Ehlers, 32, was driving northbound on S.R. 395 toward Pasco at about 10:40 a.m. when she lost control and rolled, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Ehlers was transported to Trios Health in Kennewick for her injuries. The 2008 Pontiac G6 she was driving was completely totaled.

Troopers say the woman was driving too fast for the road conditions. She was cited for negligent driving.

The woman was wearing a seatbelt and no drugs or alcohol were involved.
