Two people were transported to a Seattle hospital after a rollover accident on Vashon Highway Sunday morning.

Icy roads caused the driver of an SUV to lose control of the vehicle on Vashon Highway near the north end at about 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, according to George Brown, assistant chief of operations at Vashon Island Fire & Rescue (VIFR). The car flipped into the bushes and was totaled.

Citing privacy laws, Brown was unable to give names of the victims or say what their condition was.

Another vehicle, a minivan, appeared to have gone off the highway Monday morning, but Brown said VIFR hadn’t received a call for that accident.

Brown noted that with the recent cold temperatures, drivers should remember that roads are often slick in the morning.

“People need to slow down and be careful,” he said.
