ELECTRIC CITY, Wash. (15MAR2017) - A 23-year-old Electric City man was killed and another man injured as the result of a one vehicle rollover about one mile south of Electric City early Wednesday morning.

Brandon Buche was driving a 2006 Jeep Wrangler on Bay Area Drive near Coulee View Road around 2:00 a.m. when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road. The Jeep left the roadway, tripped on the soft gravel ditch and rolled one-and-one-quarter times.

Buche was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle. He was taken by Grand Coulee Ambulance to Coulee Medical Center where he died.

Buche's passenger, 23-year-old Brandon Boutain of Almira, suffered non-life threatening injuries. He was taken to Coulee Medical Center where he was treated and released.

Alcohol played a role in this collision. The Grant County Sheriff's Motor Traffic Unit is investigating.
