WARDEN — Four people were injured when a semi truck rear-ended a car that had slowed for traffic on state Route 17 early Tuesday afternoon, pushing it into another car.
According to a press memo from the Washington State Patrol, Javier Sanchez-Zepeda, 27, Othello, was driving north on SR-17 at about 2 p.m. Tuesday when he ran into a car driven by Matthew Bobbitt, 41, College Place. Bobbitt had slowed for traffic, the memo said.
The collision pushed Bobbitt’s car into a car driven by Steven Booth, 57, Warden. The press memo said Sanchez-Zepeda was following too closely.
Booth, Bobbitt and a passenger in Bobbitt’s car, Stephen Fuchs, 67, College Place, were transported to Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake. Sanchez-Zepeda was transported to Othello Community Hospital.
