Fatal Hanford Car Accident

 
HANFORD, WA (August 9, 2019) – A person died while three others suffered injuries in a car accident on Highway 24 on August 1.
 
The incident happened about 5:00 a.m. in the Hanford Reach National Monument wildlife refugee, Trooper John Bryant, a WSP spokesperson said.
 
The initial investigation determined that an 18-year-old male driver in a Honda Fit traveled east. As he passed several vehicles on the two-lane highway, he tried to get past two semi-trucks in an oncoming truck before he crashed head-on with a Chrysler PT Cruiser.
 
“They impacted at a pretty high rate of speed. Both vehicles caught fire,” Bryant added.
 
The 15-year-old female passenger of the Honda Fit succumbed to death. Meanwhile, two occupants of the PT Cruiser went to Cadillac Hospital in Richland by Life Flight. Responders also transported the male driver to the same hospital via ambulance.
 
The WSP shut down Highway 24 near Vernita Bridge during the Thursday morning for the investigation. By 10:30 a.m., the highway between Vernita Bridge and the Highway 243 junction reopened.
 
The state Department of Transportation administered alternate routes in place.


Our deepest sympathies are extended to the family and friends of the victim.
