Katie Van-Komen Injured in SR 17 Head-On Collision

Franklin County, WA (August 25, 2022) – On Wednesday, 24-year-old Maurico Jimenez-Ruelas of Pasco, and 38-year-old Katie Van-Komen of Ellensburg sustained injuries in a head-on collision on State Route 17.

The authorities say 29-year-old Edgar Jimenez-Ruelas of Pasco was driving a southbound box truck when he crossed the centerline and struck a Hay Squeezer head-on.

Edgar Jimenez-Ruelas did not sustain injuries from the collision. However, his passenger, Maurico Jimenez-Ruelas, incurred serious injuries.

Responding medics say Maurico incurred a serious arm injury with a possibly severed limb. Immediately, the paramedics airlifted him to Kadlec Medical Center in Richland.

Moreover, the Hay Squeezer driver, Katie Van-Komen, sustained minor injuries.

In the meantime, officers say alcohol and drugs were not a factor in this incident. But, they are still investigating why Edgar Jimenez-Ruelas crossed the centerline.

As responsible drivers, it is our role to inspect your vehicle’s headlights and turn signals to prevent any possible accidents while on the road. We need to make 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.
