MONTESANTO, Wash. (AP) - Six children and two adults were hospitalized after the driver of the vehicle fell asleep and drove off the road near Montesano in Grays Harbor County.

The Olympian reports (https://bit.ly/2fG43AK ) that the crash happened at about 10:20 p.m. Saturday.

The Washington State Patrol says when the driver fell asleep the minivan hit a tree and the impact spun the vehicle 90 degrees. It came to rest on its wheels.

The driver and her passengers were taken to area hospitals, but two girls, ages 9 and 6, were flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

The adults were wearing seat belts, but the children were not. The youngest was an 11-month-old girl.

The driver faces a possible charge of second-degree negligent driving.
