The hood of a West Richland driver's car flew up Thursday and shattered her windshield, injuring her, the Washington State Patrol said.
Robin Lee Howard-Haight, 49, of West Richland, was driving a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue south at 11:24 a.m. on Interstate 82 about 13 miles south of Ellensburg, the state patrol said.
After the hood flew up, Howard-Haight had to pull off to the left shoulder of the highway, the state patrol said.
She was taken to Kittitas Valley Healthcare in Ellensburg with unknown injuries.
