CHELAN — An early morning crash northwest of Chelan Monday left an 18-year-old Manson girl in critical condition and the man who was driving in jail.
Jaqueline Campos was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center, and was still critical in the intensive care unit this morning, a hospital spokeswoman said.
The driver of the vehicle, Hilario Valdovinos-Sanchez, 20, of Pullman and Manson, was initially taken to the Lake Chelan Community Hospital, and was in the Chelan County Regional Justice Center this morning on suspicion of vehicular assault.
Valdovinos was driving north on Highway 971 about three miles south of Chelan when his 1999 Ford Explorer went off the road, hit a ditch and rolled into a vineyard, a Washington State Patrol said.
No one was wearing a seat belt, and drugs or alcohol was involved in the 3:18 a.m. crash, the report said.
Another juvenile passenger, whose name was not released, was also injured and taken to the Lake Chelan Community Hospital. A hospital spokesman said Monday afternoon that no patients from the crash were still at the hospital.
