20-Year-Old Driver Injured in Vehicle Crash on Interstate 82 [Yakima, WA]

Crash on Interstate 82 Injures Female Driver

Yakima, WA (August 05, 2021)– On Tuesday, a 20-year-old female driver suffered injuries in a vehicular accident on Interstate 82.

The accident happened at about 1:47 p.m. south of Union Gap.

The 20-year-old driving a 2006 Toyota Camry and a 21-year-old Wapato driver in a 2000 Honda Accord were both westbound on the freeway.

Officers said the Wapato man lost control of his vehicle and hit the young woman’s vehicle. The crash totaled the woman’s Camry and injured her.

Rescuers took her to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital to be treated for her injuries.

Moreover, officers said both drivers were wearing their seatbelts during the accident. They do not consider impairment from drugs/alcohol as a factor in this crash.

The authorities charged the Wapato man with improper lane usage.

Since you cannot read the intention of the driver in front of you, don’t tailgate.

Make it your practice to allow space between you and the vehicle in front of you.

Always maintain some distance between your vehicle and the one ahead in order to give yourself enough response time should the vehicle ahead make a sudden turn or stop.

Dealing with Vehicular Accidents

While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities performed daily. That is because auto accidents are a major public health threat. Traffic accidents are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.

That is why it is indeed crucial that everyone drives defensively in order to avoid traffic accidents as much as possible.

Meanwhile, here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving:

-First, always drive at a controllable speed.

-Then, it is also important not to assume you know the other driver’s intention.

– Also, be prepared to positively react to other drivers.

– This one, we should never neglect. Yield at intersections, even if you have right of way.

– Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.
