Multiple Injured in 4-Vehicle Collision near Fort Road

 
TOPPENISH, WA (September 8, 2018) –  Six people were rushed to the hospital Saturday night after a multi-car accident near Highway 97.
 
The four-vehicle collision occurred at around 9:00 PM off of Fort Road, just west of Toppenish. Five people were transported to the Virginia Mason Memorial Hospital with unknown injuries, four of which have since been released and one is said to be in fair condition. The sixth person sustained serious injuries and was rushed to the Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. It was reported that they are still in hospital care at this time.
 
The Washington State Department of Transportation shut down Highway 97 for nearly five hours while crews cleaned up and state officials conducted their investigation on the incident. The road was re-opened to the public at around 2:00 AM.
 
Drugs or alcohol are believed to be involved in the collision, but no further updates were immediately released.
 
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs could lead to disastrous results. It is illegal to drive under the influence, so be responsible and call a Lyft, Uber, taxi, or family member/ friend to pick you up.
