Distracted Driving Likely Cause Of Grant County Rollover, Says State Patrol

Mattawa, WA (April 28, 2022)- The driver of a semi-truck that crashed on State Route 243 Thursday morning was believed to be distracted, Washington State Patrol said.

The truck was carrying apples when it crashed along the Columbia River in Grant County, injuring two people.

The 27-year-old female driver from San Antonio apparently overcorrected her truck when it began to tilt, causing it to roll, WSP said.

A Life Flight helicopter airlifted the driver and her passenger to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland for treatment with no life-threatening injuries, Trooper John Bryant said.

The affected roadway was blocked for three hours due to the crash, which totaled the vehicle and its trailer, officials said.
