Four Vehicles Involved in Fatal Collision near Old Milton Highway
WALLA WALLA, WA (August 13, 2018) – One woman was pronounced dead Tuesday morning, after a multi-vehicle crash on State Route 125. The deceased victim was later identified as 23-year-old Sydney English-Hawkins of Walla Walla.
According to the Washington State Patrol, the collision took place at about 7:15 AM at Old Milton Highway near College Place. English-Hawkins was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision and was ejected from her vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders.
Two juvenile passengers in her vehicle were injured and transported to the Providence St. Mary Medical Center. Two other drivers, 38-year-old Flor Perez of Walla Walla and 27-year-old Ruby Gonzalez-Romero of Milton-Freewater, were injured and also transported to the same hospital for treatment. The fourth driver, 24-year-old McKenzie Fuhrman of Weston, was uninjured in the accident.
The fatal pile-up reportedly started when Perez lost control and collided with English-Hawkins’ vehicle in the intersection, before crashing into the other two vehicles. State Route 125 was closed for several hours while crews cleaned up the area and officials conducted their investigation.
No additional information has been released to the public at this time.
