PROSSER, Wash. — Two drivers were injured in an evening collision at an intersection off WA-221 near Prosser on Monday night, according to Washington State Patrol (WSP) Troopers who are investigating the incident.

According to a press memo issued by WSP Troopers, the crash was reported at 5:09 p.m. on May 9, 2022. First responders rushed to the intersection of W Sellards Rd and S.R. 221 (WA-221), which is approximately 12 miles south of Prosser.

The first vehicle, a pickup truck being driven by a 49-year-old man from Kennewick, was stopped at the intersection when the second driver, a 52-year-old Grandview, WA man was driving northbound on WA-221 in his sedan.

WSP Troopers deducted that the pickup truck driver failed to yield the right of way and entered the roadway as the Grandview man drove through the intersection. He crashed into the pickup truck, rending both vehicles totaled from the impact.

Medical first responders brought the Grandview man to Kadlec Regional Medical Center for emergency evaluation and treatment. No further details regarding his condition have been made available. The driver of the pickup truck was also injured but ultimately was not transported to the hospital due to the nature of his injuries.

Intoxication from alcohol and/or drugs was not a factor in the crash, though WSP Troopers are still working to determine possible charges for the responsible driver.

This is a breaking news story. An update and/or follow-up may be issued if further details are revealed.
