Two injured in Pasco crash

PASCO — A one-vehicle crash at the U.S. Highway 395-Court Street interchange left two people hospitalized Tuesday night, June 18.

Diego A. Galvez-Gutierrez, 20, and Luciano M. Galvez, 64, both of Pasco, were injured and transported to a Richland hospital.

According to the Washington State Patrol, both men were wearing seatbelts when the northbound 2006 Dodge Ram pickup driven by Galvez-Gutierrez struck a guardrail.

Galvez-Gutierrez swerved and overcorrected, causing the crash, the patrol said.

Neither drugs nor alcohol was a factor in the 2:54 p.m. crash, the patrol reported.
