3 injured in accident on Nine Canyon Road

Two men and a woman were injured in a crash three miles south of Kennewick on Wednesday, the Washington State Patrol said.

Jeffery Johnson, 52, of Kennewick, was on Nine Canyon Road in a 2005 Dodge Magnum when he failed to stop at a stop sign, troopers said.

Johnson struck a 2009 Saturn driven by Riker A. Monlux, 18, of Kennewick, troopers said.

Monlux was treated at Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland. He has been released but doesn't remember the crash, his mother told the Herald.

Johnson and his passenger, Bonnie J. Chasteen, 30, of Kennewick, were taken to Kennewick General Hospital.

Johnson was in stable condition Thursday evening, a hospital spokeswoman said. No information was available on Chasteen.

All were wearing their seat belts, the patrol said.
