A woman and man were injured when their vehicle collided with a traffic signal pole and concrete wall in Kennewick last week.
A gray 2006 Chevrolet Malibu was moving fast, heading west on Columbia Drive, when it struck a curb at the intersection with Fruitland Street at 1:49 a.m. Friday, police said.
The driver, Brisa Bajonero, 23, of Pasco, lost control and hit the pole and concrete wall, said Sgt. Randy Maynard.
Her passenger, Javier Tapia, 23, of Kennewick, was unconscious and trapped in the car.

The Kennewick Fire Department cut the car open to remove them.
Bajonero was taken to Trios Southridge Hospital for treatment of facial fractures and internal bleeding, Maynard said.
Tapia was not wearing a seat belt and was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland in critical condition.
Their condition was not available Monday.
Police obtained a search warrant to draw the driver’s blood to check for alcohol or drug impairment.
