OTHELLO -- The Washington State Patrol reported one person was injured in a crash on Highway 26 east of Othello at 1:30 p.m. Monday.

Carrie J.G. Stryka, 43, of Post Falls, Idaho, was taken to Othello Community Hospital after her 1996 Plymouth van was struck by a 1990 Peterbilt truck-tractor driven by Donald B. Hightower, 78, of Kennewick.

Troopers said Hightower was driving north on Booker Road and at a stop sign failed to yield to Stryka, who was driving east on Highway 26.
