GEORGE, Wash. - A Gig Harbor family escaped with minor injuries after their SUV pulling a trailer crashed on Interstate 90 in Eastern Washington Thursday night.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the GMC Yukon was headed westbound on I-90 when the trailer began oscillating back and forth.

The driver lost control, crossed over the freeway and crashed in the median, just west of the town of George.

The State Patrol tweeted photos showing the trailer completely destroyed.

Troopers said the SUV and trailer detached from each other before the crash.

The 40-year-old driver was not hurt in the crash. His 40-year-old wife, their 12-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter were taken to Quincy Valley Medical Center with minor injuries.

Troopers said the driver was going too fast. He was cited for negligence.
