Two Pasco residents were injured Thursday night when a tractor driven by a 16-year-old boy caused another vehicle to swerve off the roadway into a canal along the side of Highway 395 near Pasco, according to a Washington State Patrol news release.
Carson Calaway was driving a John Deere farm tractor east on Phend Road when he attempted to cross the northbound lanes of travel. A 2000 Dodge Caravan driven by Sylvia A. Hinojosa, 45, swerved to avoid the tractor and left the roadway, traveling over an embankment into a canal, according to the release.
Hinojosa and her passenger, Martin A. Hinojosa, 50, were taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center with unknown injuries. Information on their conditions was not available. All involved were wearing seatbelts or restraints, according to the news release.
