A state trooper rolled a patrol cruiser on eastbound Interstate 90 early Monday east of Issaquah amid foggy and icy conditions.

The incident occurred at about 3 a.m. as Trooper Casey Myers, 28, neared the end of his shift and hit a patch of black ice. The patrol cruiser veered off the roadway and then rolled into a roadside embankment.

The six-year veteran trooper did not sustain injuries in the crash, but he later checked into Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellevue as a precaution.

The state Department of Transportation also treated roads to combat ice, but crews responded to ice-related crashes on Eastside roads.

Officials used the incident as a reminder to motorists to use caution on icy roads.

    Driving too fast for conditions? Destruction of public property? If it was anyone else they’d get the book thrown at them.

Got something to say?
