BURBANK -- A wreck Friday evening on the Snake River bridge actually was caused by a car hitting the back of a semi-truck that was stopped for road construction.
A Washington State Patrol report sent out three hours after the 8:33 p.m. collision erroneously said the tractor-trailer driver was at fault.
Stevie V. Sparks, who was behind the wheel of 1997 Dodge Intrepid, failed to stop in the construction zone on eastbound Highway 12 and slammed into a 2010 Mack truck driven by Donald R. Dickey, the State Patrol confirmed Sunday.
Troopers have said alcohol or drugs might be involved.
Sparks, 46, of Pasco is in fair condition at Kennewick General Hospital, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
Dickey, 51, of Goodman, Mo., was not injured.
