A 7-year-old and 5-year-old from Hermiston were taken to the hospital following a three-vehicle collision on Interstate 82 south of Kennewick.
The crash happened Wednesday about 5:45 p.m. as Jessica R. Estes, 28, of Hermiston, drove west on the interstate with the two children in a Lincoln Navigator, the Washington State Patrol said.
The SUV crashed into a Subaru Legacy, then struck a semi-truck, the state patrol said. The drivers of the Subaru and the truck were not hurt.
The boy and girl were taken to Trios Health in Kennewick, the state patrol said. Their names were not released because of their age so their conditions were not available.
Estes was not hurt, though troopers say she was cited for negligent driving.
