Des Moines Police find overturned vehicle with a unconscious driver still inside.

Just after midnight, Des Moines Police found a collision scene involving an overturned vehicle on First Avenue S, just past SW 211th Street in the city of Normandy Park. Officers requested aid stating the female driver was unconscious, but before fire arrived, the officers reported that the vehicle began to smoke and they had to pull the female out. Crews from South King Fire and King County Fire District 2 arrived and began treating the driver, and King County Medic One then transported her to an area hospital. Washington State Patrol assisted with the collision investigation, but the cause is still under investigation.
