A Lynnwood man was arrested after his car struck another car, causing it to flip over, according to the Washington State Patrol, which says the man then drove three miles before crashing into a barrier on Interstate 405 in Kirkland shortly after midnight today.

A Toyota Corolla and a Jeep Liberty were northbound on I-405 near Northeast 70th Place in a construction zone when the Toyota drifted, struck construction barrels and then overcorrected, the Washington State Patrol said. The Toyota then struck the Jeep, causing it to roll onto its top. The driver of the Toyota continued on northbound I-405 until the vehicle struck a barrier at Northeast 124th Street, the State Patrol says.

The two occupants of the Jeep, a 44-year-old man from Tacoma and a 44-year-old woman from Texas, were injured and taken to hospitals. The Toyota driver, a 56-year-old Lynnwood man, wasn’t injured. He was booked into the King County Jail on suspicion of driving under the influence, hit-and-run and vehicular assault.
