Two people were injured on Highway 26 just west of Othello when a car ran into a pickup turning off the highway.
Gloria Gonzalez Castaneda, 18, of Othello was eastbound on the highway in a Chevrolet K1 pickup when she stopped to make a legal left turn, a release from Washington State Patrol said.
Fernando Faustino, 19, also of Othello, was also eastbound and behind Castaneda in a Pontiac Grand Am. He was following too close and not paying attention and ran into the rear of Castaneda’s truck.
Both were taken to Othello Community Hospital after the crash. Both vehicles were damaged but only Faustino’s had to be towed from the scene.
