Photos: 2 taken to hospital after car flips over embankment

A driver and passenger suffered minor injuries after their car left the road and went over a small embankment Friday afternoon, said fire officials.

The car was headed south on Gallagher Hill Road, when officials say for some reason it went off the road, flipped over on its side, and landed between two trees and some rocks.

Fire officials say both patients had to be extricated from the car and were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Mercer Island Police are investigating the crash.
