Two injured in rollover crash near Reliance

RELIANCE—Two people sustained minor injuries early Friday morning when a vehicle rolled over the median on Interstate 90 and caught on fire.

Authorities said that Chin Shek, 27, of Arlington, Virginia, was driving a 2016 Subaru Forester 1 mile east of Reliance just before 1 a.m. when he became drowsy and lost control of the vehicle.

Both Shek and his passenger — both of whom were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash — were able to get out of the vehicle before it became engulfed in flames. The passenger refused treatment for his injuries, and Shek was transported to the Sanford Chamberlain Medical Center. Charges are pending.
