Two Othello residents were injured early Tuesday after a two-car collision on Highway 24 about 33 miles west of Othello.
Whitney S. Blaak, 32, of Othello, was westbound on Highway 24 when her gray 2011 Subaru Outback crossed the center line and hit an eastbound white 1999 Ford flatbed pickup at about 5:45 a.m., according to Washington State Patrol.
The pickup, driven by Donald J. Brulotte, 59, of Yakima, came to rest on its top in the shoulder of eastbound Highway 24. The Subaru Outback also ended up in that shoulder.
Brulotte was not injured.
Both Whitney Blaak and her passenger Todd M. Blaak, 43, of Othello, were transported by ambulance to Richland’s Kadlec Regional Medical Center. Both were treated and released.
All three were wearing seat belts.
Whitney Blaak was charged in connection with failing to keep right of the center line, according to Washington State Patrol.
