Separate early-morning crashes Wednesday near the same spot on Interstate 82 west of Prosser sent a total of four people to the hospital.
Drivers of two different vehicles lost control heading east near milepost 78 and crashed into guardrails, the Washington State Patrol said. One, a Honda Civic, went off the road and rolled down an embankment.
All four people were taken to Prosser Memorial Hospital to be treated for injuries, state police said. They were wearing seat belts.
Margie Villa, 40, of Toppenish, was driving the Honda when she lost control and rolled the car off the road, state police said. She had two passengers in the car — Alejandra Morfin Ixtas, 20, and Jacqueline M. Garcia, 19, both of Sunnyside.
Never miss a local story.
A little more than 10 minutes later, Marissa M. Vargas, 23, of Wapato, lost control near the same area and crashed a Ford F-150 into the median, state police said. The truck also hit a guardrail, crossed both lanes of traffic and hit another guardrail on the left side of the road.
There were no passengers in the truck.
The Honda was totaled and the pickup had some damage. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
