One woman was hurt in a Monday afternoon crash that tied up traffic on Highway 240 for about two hours.
Kyara Zepeda, 20, of Kennewick, was driving a Chrysler 200 west on the highway at 4:15 p.m. when traffic in front of her slowed.
The Washington State Patrol says she was too close to a Toyota Scion driven by Lindsey G. Herberholz, 31, Puyallup, and hit the back of it. The collision then pushed the Scion into a Ford 150 pickup.
Herberholz was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland. Her condition wasn’t available.
Zepeda, and the driver of the truck, Darrell J. Lang, 63, of Prosser, were not hurt.
The state patrol cited Zepeda with negligent driving.
