The identities of the injured passengers was also not released by authorities.
Nobody in the vehicle were wearing their seat belts.
Vargas is facing charges of vehicular assault and suspected DUI, was also injured and transported to a separate hospital.
That stretch of I-90 from the Spokane are to Ellensburg is often the scene of fatal and injury accidents, both DUI related and not.
