Two Yakima residents were hospitalized with serious injuries in a recent car crash at around 5:00 a.m. The driver, 17, and passenger, 33, were transported to Yakima Regional Medical and Cardiac Center for initial treatment. The younger car accident victim was then flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Police also expect the passenger to be transported to Harborview presently.
There are apparently eyewitnesses who have stated that the vehicle was speeding around the time of the accident. The SUV allegedly "left the roadway striking several objects, including a power pole, a parked vehicle and came to rest against a tree," according to a Yakima Police Department Sergeant.
