Kenneth Stills Uninjured, Joseph Donaldson Cited Following 82 Freeway Collision Near Milepost 33
YAKIMA, WA (February 5, 2019) – Fortunately, no one was injured Thursday morning when a sports car and a semi-truck hauling a mobile home crashed on the 82 Freeway near Milepost 33.
According to the Washington State Patrol news release, 67-year-old Kenneth R. Stills was driving a 1997 Freightliner tractor-trailer westbound on the freeway when he changed lanes and crashed into a westbound 2003 Chevrolet Corvette, driven by 24-year-old Joseph D. Donaldson.
The crash caused the trailer and mobile home to overturn onto the freeway around 8:40 a.m.
A preliminary investigation led Troopers to determine that the sports car was traveling at a high rate of speed at the time. Donaldson, of Zillah, was cited for alleged reckless driving. Stills, of Selah, was not hurt in the crash, which later blocked both eastbound lanes and one westbound lane.
Both drivers had their seat belts on, and impairment was not said to be a factor in the collision.
