Stanislav Semenyuk Hurt in State Route 17 Hit-and-Run Accident [Othello, WA]

Santos Sontay-Hernandez Arrested in Othello Hit-and-Run Collision

Othello, WA (December 13, 2022) On Saturday, 53-year-old Stanislav Semenyuk of Kennewick sustained injuries after a hit-and-run accident on State Route 17.

Washington State Troopers arrested 21-year-old Santos Sontay-Hernandez after leaving the scene of the 2-vehicle crash on SR 17.

Reports say that a southbound sedan crossed the centerline and struck a vehicle driven by Semenyuk.

Officials say that the collision injured Semenyuk. Paramedics transported Stanislav Semenyuk to Othello Community Hospital.

Meanwhile, officials say that Santos Sontay-Hernandez did not suffer injuries. Instead, Sontay-Hernandez fled the scene.

Authorities apprehended Sontay-Hernandez a little bit later.

Furthermore, authorities are investigating the probable cause of the hit-and-run collision.

This is a powerful reminder to always pay close attention to drivers around you. Constantly keep a considerable distance from others just in case harm is near.

Inspect 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.

Being responsible drivers plays a big part in preventing incidents like the State Route 17 hit-and-run accident.


Dealing With a Traffic Crash Injuries
