    KALAMA, Wash. - Authorities say a rollover crash on Interstate 5 in southwest Washington killed a child and two grandparents.

    The Daily News reports that the crash happened Saturday afternoon when a northbound sport-utility vehicle struck a median near Kalama.

    The Washington State Patrol says it was driven by a woman transporting her parents and three children.

    At least five of the people in the vehicle were ejected, and investigators believe they were not wearing seatbelts.

    A female child and the grandparents were declared dead at the scene. Another child was flown to a hospital, with the mother and third child taken by ambulance.

    Troopers believe distracted driving to be the cause of the accident.
