State Route 240 Rollover Crash Injures Woman and Child

Richland, WA (November 01, 2021)– On Sunday, a 22-year-old Kennewick woman and a 6-year-old boy were injured in State Route 240 hit-and-run crash.

Washington State Patrol’s report says the crash took place at about 6:20 p.m. near Duportail Road.

Apparently, the hit-and-run suspect was westbound on the freeway when they hit a car traveling the same direction.

Afterward, the vehicle that was struck then hit the Jersey barrier and rolled over before it struck another car.

Right away, the rescuers rushed the woman and the child in the car that rolled to a local hospital. Officers said they were both wearing their seatbelts at the time of the incident.

Moreover, the suspect fled the scene and it’s unknown what kind of vehicle they were driving.

The perverse actions of a reckless driver can increase the likelihood of traffic collisions. If you are a driver, pay close attention to those around you. Always keep a considerable distance from others just in case harm is near. It is always better to practice defensive driving.
