PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State Patrol says two men were flown to the hospital via MedStar on Thursday after a two-car crash near Pullman. 

Troopers say a car driven by 24-year-old Ryan Tritten of Enumclaw was heading south on Highway 195 when Tritten made a U-turn in front of pickup truck driven by 82-year-old Norman Druffel of Pullman. Druffel's pickup collided with the driver's side of Tritten's car. Tritten and his passenger, 23-year-old James Sullins of Spokane were both seriously injured and flown to a hospital in Spokane by MedStar. 

Troopers said Druffel was not injured. 

The cause of the crash is being blamed on Tritten's illegal U-turn.
