Two adults and a child were injured Thursday morning when their car rolled off Interstate 182 near Queensgate Drive in Richland, according to the Washington State Patrol.
A 40-year-old Pasco man was heading east on I-182 when he drove his Ford Ranger pickup truck off the freeway. The truck rolled near Queensgate Drive.
The man and his two passengers — a 40-year-old Pasco man and a 7-year-old child — were taken to Trios Southridge Hospital in Kennewick for their injuries.
The 7-year-old was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the incident, State Patrol said.
Police cited the driver for an improper lane change.

Those injuries include:
