A Kennewick woman was injured Monday night when her car hit a truck on Highway 14 at Christie Road five miles west of Interstate 82 in southern Benton County.
Cynthia Guerra, 23, was driving west at 8:30 p.m. when she tried to pass a semi-truck also driving west. She hit the semi-truck, which did not stop, according to the Washington State patrol.
Guerra, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken to Hermiston for medical treatment. The WSP said she will be cited for unsafe passing.
