A Pasco woman was hospitalized Tuesday after her car was slammed into the back of a cement truck on Highway 240 in Richland.
The cement mixer, driven by J. Aguilar-Haro, 43, of Pasco, was stopped at a rail crossing at 10:55 a.m. near Robertson Drive on the bypass highway.
Karen C. Holm, 72, of Pasco, was stopped behind the truck when Charles J. Reavis, 46, of Kennewick, didn’t stop in time. His Ford Focus plowed into the back of her Toyota Corolla, said Trooper Daniel Mosqueda, with the Washington State Patrol.
Holm was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland. Her condition was not immediately available.
The state patrol cited Reavis for second-degree negligent driving.
