      Sheriff: 5 injured in car wreck near George

      GEORGE, Wash. (AP) - The Grant County Sheriff's Office says two men suffered broken necks and three others were also injured when their car rolled over after failing to negotiate a curve near George.

      Alcohol and speed were cited as factors.

      Investigators say 22-year-old Christian Beener, of Federal Way, was driving a 1997 Subaru on Road 1 at about 12:30 a.m. Friday when the car left the roadway and rolled over one and a half times. Beener sustained a broken wrist.

      Two male passengers - a 22-year-old from Federal Way and a 28-year-old from Tacoma - suffered broken necks and were transported to Central Washington Hospital. One other passenger suffered a broken leg and another just had bumps and bruises.

      All of the men were wearing seatbelts.
