MESA — A Soap Lake man is accused of following too close and causing a crash at 6:59 a.m. today, Thursday, July 29, on state Highway 17 near Paradise Road, about nine miles north of town.

Thomas M. Barnes, 36, of Soap Lake, allegedly failed to slow down for traffic in front of him, the Washington State Patrol said.

The patrol cited the driver for following too close.
