      Franklin County woman injured in Othello crash

      OTHELLO, Wash. -- A Basin City woman was hospitalized Friday afternoon after her car crashed into another car in Othello.

      According to Washington State Patrol, 37-year-old Edith Lopez-Cortes was driving west on State Route 24 near Baker Street when a driver in front of her suddenly slammed on the brakes. Her Honda Civic hit the car, and a pickup then rear-ended her vehicle.

      Lopez-Cortez was taken to Othello Community Hospital. She and the driver of the pickup, 30-year-old Samuel Gomez of Othello, will be cited for following too closely.

      The first vehicle, described as a brown or silver passenger car, left the scene.
