WSP Investigates Auto-Pedestrian Crash Near 1st Street

Selah, WA (May 15, 2024) On Tuesday morning, a 63-year-old Yakima woman was hurt and hospitalized after a pedestrian crash on Goodlander Road.

According to the Washington State Patrol (WSP), the auto-pedestrian collision happened on Goodlander Road near 1st Street at about 9:30 a.m.

Reports say that a 32-year-old Yakima man, driving a Dodge Ram, struck a female pedestrian on a crosswalk. Officials say that the Dodge driver was turning left onto 1st Street from Goodlander Road.

Medics rushed the injured woman to Harborview Medical Center, where the woman’s injuries are being treated, but are not reported to be life-threatening.

Authorities are investigating the auto-pedestrian collision.

Cell phone use while driving poses a significant risk of death and injury on U.S. roads. 3,308 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes caused by distracted drivers in 2022.

Distracted driving is anything that takes your attention from driving. It includes talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment, or navigation system. It is anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving.

In many jurisdictions, distracted driving is not only dangerous but also illegal. Laws have been implemented to penalize drivers who engage in activities such as using a cell phone while driving. These penalties can include fines, points on the driver’s license, and even license suspension in some cases. It is important to be aware of and abide by these laws to ensure the safety of yourself and others on the road.

It is impossible to drive safely unless you give your full attention to the task at hand. Any non-driving activity you do is a potential distraction and increases your risk of collision.
