The Yakima Herald reported that Claire Piper, 39, was driving the truck on Interstate 90 early Tuesday morning when she went off the road and overcorrected twice.

Piper lost control and the truck swerved across all lanes twice before it rolled. The asphalt truck rolled into the median where it landed on its wheels.

She was taken to a nearby hospital and listed in fair condition. Alcohol or drugs did not appear to cause the crash, but Piper was charged for leaving the road and not wearing a seatbelt.
