Tow truck operator Larry Ganske of Clearwater Collision & Towing prepares to haul away a 2005 Nissan Altima involved in a collision Tuesday morning in the eastbound lanes of West Clearwater Avenue near Badger Road in Kennewick.
Police officials say Nissan driver Donna Maxwell, 46, of Kennewick, was trying to adjust a soft cast on her right foot when swerved into oncoming traffic, hitting a Ford F450 pickup driven by Gannon Kangas, 19, of Vancouver.
Maxwell was taken to Trios Southridge Hospital with a serious left leg cut.
The eastbound lanes of Clearwater Avenue were closed while the vehicles were hauled away.
