Search underway for woman, 8-year-old boy after SUV rolled into Snoqualmie River

FALL CITY, Wash. — First responders have located the vehicle that rolled into the Snoqualmie River in Fall City with a woman and an 8-year-old boy inside.

Washington State Patrol trooper Rick Johnson said a family of four were inside the vehicle when the driver, a 35-year-old Carnation man, lost control while attempting a left turn on westbound State Route 202 near 332nd Avenue Southeast and rolled into the river just before 2 a.m. Sunday.

The driver was able to get out of the vehicle with an 8-month-old girl, but a woman and an 8-year-old have not been found, law enforcement said. Officials believe they are still in the SUV.

First responders with the King County Sheriff’s Office and Eastside Fire & Rescue assisted in the search for the SUV Sunday.

Search crews were back on the water at 10:00 a.m. Monday and located the SUV several hours later, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office. It was found in the Snoqualmie River, in 15 feet of water.

Troopers said the driver was arrested for driving under the influence.
