Highway 12 Crash Injures Julian Gutierrez and Francis Kontur

Walla Walla County, WA (November 08, 2021)– On Saturday, 47-year-old Julian Gutierrez of Hermiston, and his passenger, Francis Kontur, 85-year-old also from Hermiston, suffered injuries in a Highway 12 crash.

It was about 10:23 a.m. when the collision happened east of Wallula Junction.

Officers said 62-year-old Kaziputalimba Joshua of Walla Walla, was westbound in a 2004 Honda Pilot.  

Joshua stopped in the roadway and started to back up.

However, a 1998 Dodge R35 driven by Gutierrez rear-ended Joshua’s vehicle at milepost 310.

Rescuers took Kontur via ambulance to St. Mary, and they took Gutierrez to the medical center by private transport.

Similarly, Joshua and his passenger, Stephen Hammond, 65-year-old from Sterling, VA. suffered injuries. Rescuers took them to Providence St. Mary Medical Center in Walla Walla.

Moreover, the authorities cited Joshua for improper backing. Drugs or alcohol were not a factor in this vehicle collision.

Always check your vehicle before you leave.

Start by inspecting your vehicle’s headlights and turn signals, be sure that both front and rear headlamps are working properly and visible enough a couple of yards away. 

Also, take a reading of your tire pressure and make sure you maintain the recommended maximum. While at it, take a peek under your vehicle and ensure there are no loose objects or leaks.

Most importantly, stay focused while on the road. Remove all distractions that could cause accidents such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.


Several Injured in Crash

Washington’s road accident rate continues to increase, rather than decrease, despite the additional safety features on newer vehicle models.

The increasing crash rate reflects that auto accidents are a major public health threat. They are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.

As a matter of fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), two out of three motorists will be involved in an injury accident during their life.

That is why knowing what to do if you get involved in a motor vehicle accident plays a big part in one’s life.
