A late-night crash left a Newcastle man with serious injuries Saturday after a speeding car hit his pickup from behind.

Washington State Patrol investigators said the accident occurred at about 11:30 p.m. on state Route 900 near 172nd Place Southeast, southwest of Issaquah. Troopers said a 25-year-old Issaquah woman driving a Ford Focus headed eastbound on SR 900 struck the Ford pickup driven by the 35-year-old Newcastle man.

The crash sent the truck into a ditch. The vehicle flipped and landed on its roof. Troopers said the Focus came to rest in the front yard of a nearby residence.

Medics transported the man to Harborview Medical Center for treatment. He had not been wearing a seatbelt. Troopers released the woman after she received medical treatment at the scene.

Troopers continue to investigate the accident.
