Injured in Three Vehicle Collision on Walnut Street
Yakima, WA (April 8, 2022) – On Thursday morning, two children sustained injuries in a stolen truck crash on Naches Avenue.
The authorities say that a trooper spotted a truck reported as stolen and the trooper tried to pull it over.
However, the truck did not stop and began to drive recklessly. The troopers ended the pursuit.
Minutes later, the same trooper was near the police station and spotted the stolen truck at the intersection with Walnut Street.
The person driving the stolen truck collided with the police cruiser and a white van.
Unfortunately, the van’s driver and its two passengers, both under 5 years old sustained injuries in the accident.
Right away, the paramedics took the two children to a hospital with significant but non-fatal injuries. The van driver, on the other hand, was treated at the crash scene for minor injuries.

Stealing vehicles is a crime.
