PASCO, Wash. - Four people have been hurt after troopers said a driver ran a red light and crashed with three other vehicles, including a police car.
A 38-year-old Pasco woman was driving an SUV at Sylvester Street when she ran a red light at the Road 28 intersection and hit a Subaru Forester heading north on Road 28, Thursday afternoon.
The SUV then struck a pickup truck heading in the opposite direction at Sylvester, causing the pickup to hit a Pasco Police patrol car, the Washington State Patrol (WSP) reported.
The SUV driver and her passenger were injured and taken to Lourdes Medical Center.
