Multiple Injuries Reported in Grant County Accident on Road 11 and Road P
GRANT COUNTY, WA (May 18, 2021) – Monday morning, four teens suffered injuries in a crash on Road 11 and Road P in Grant County.
According to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, the incident occurred at around 4:00 a.m. Moreover, the incident happened on Road 11-Southwest from Road P-Southwest.
Reports revealed that a 17-year-old Royal City teen driver dropped his phone. As he tried to grab it, the driver accidentally veered off the road. Eventually, the vehicle crashed into a utility pole and caused it to overturn.
The impact partially ejected a 16-year-old girl in the vehicle. Thus, responders airlifted her to Confluence Health-Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee, and then to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Also, responders transported two other teens inside the vehicle, a 16 and a 17-year-old.
Furthermore, an ambulance transported two other passengers and the driver to Samaritan Health Care in Moses Lake.
The Grant County Sheriff’s Office said that they sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
Also, authorities noted that the teenage driver took the family’s vehicle without them knowing.
At this time, the charges against the driver remain pending.
Staying within the lanes of the road is an extremely important rule of the road. Moreover, if you feel yourself drifting into other lanes due to fatigue or any other reason, safely pull over. Then, rest before continuing to drive. Also, you can call a friend or an Uber to pick you up if you feel like it would be unsafe to drive.
