Mabton residents uninjured in
Three Mabton residents escaped injury yesterday when a 1989
Buick Riveria crashed into the 1998 Dodge Neon in which they were riding.
The driver of the Neon was 30-year-old Jose M. Guillen of
Mabton. He was northbound on SR-221 at about 7:30 p.m. Monday evening when the
driver of the '89 Buick, eastbound on Horrigan Road, failed to yield to
Guillen's car. The two vehicles collided in the intersection.
Washington State Patrol troopers say the cause of the
accident was inattention on the part of the driver of the Buick—43-year-old
Gregoria C. Castillo of Umatilla, Ore. He, along with two passengers in the
Buick avoided injuries. A third passenger, 51-year-old Ortencia Renteria of
Umatilla, required hospitalization, though, and was airlifted to Yakima
Guillen and two passengers in his '98 Dodge Neon did not
require medical treatment.
Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene.
