Two Pasco women were injured Monday night when their car was hit from the back near the blue bridge between Kennewick and Pasco.
Bjorn Grindstaff, 20, of Kennewick, was driving a Volkswagen Jetta north toward the bridge when a Chrysler van driven by Maria Cruz Ceja, 46, of Pasco, slowed for traffic.
Grindstaff’s car hit the back of Cruz Ceja’s van just after 9 p.m., according to the Washington State Patrol.
Cruz Ceja and her passenger, Elena Cruz, 60, of Pasco, were both taken to Trios Southridge Hospital in Kennewick. Grindstaff was not injured.
