Crash leaves one injured

PASCO - A one car crash left one injured Tuesday evening, Jan. 4.

Manuel Chavez, 30, of Zillah, lost control of his 2004 Chevrolet Silverado pickup while allegedly driving too fast for conditions on northbound U.S. Highway 395, near Foster Wells Road, the Washington State Patrol reported.

While the driver was not injured, his passenger, Kaitlynn Stater, 21, of Yakima, was transported to Lourdes Medical Center in Pasco with injuries.

His truck slid off the roadway and struck an embankment at about 5:39 p.m., the patrol reported.

Neither drugs nor alcohol were not a factor of the crash, the patrol said, adding that both Chavez and Stater were wearing their seatbelts.

The 2004 Chevrolet Silverado was left totaled upon collision.
