Man Airlifted to Hospital After Crash Near Rochester


A 35-year-old man sustained life-threatening injuries when his car crashed into a guardrail near Rochester on Monday evening.

About 6:45 p.m., the man was driving south in the 16700 block of Littlerock Road when he veered right off the road and hit a guardrail, according to Thurston County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Chris Packard.

The impact sent the vehicle across the road and tumbling onto a nearby property. The man was thrown from the car, Packard said.

The man was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, but his condition was not known Tuesday morning.
