ZILLAH - Three Grandview residents suffered injuries as the result of a one-vehicle crash on Labor Day, along I-82 near Zillah.
According to the Washington State Patrol, Mary S. Segovia was driving a 2005 Hyundai Elantra eastbound on I-82 at about 11:44 a.m. this past Monday. Near milepost 52.8 just outside of Zillah, Segovia began passing another vehicle.
WSP troopers report the Elantra drifted off the roadway into the inside shoulder. Segovia, they say, corrected to the right, then over-corrected back to the left, which caused the sedan to exit the freeway into the median. At that point, say troopers, the car rotated counter-clockwise and rolled, coming to rest on the passenger side of the vehicle.
Segovia had two passengers in her car, one of whom was completely ejected and the other partially ejected.
The two passengers were Rudolfo Saenz, 45, and Antonio Vela, 15. The two of them, along with the 50-year-old Segovia, all list Grandview as their hometown. All three were transported to Regional Medical Center to receive medical attention.
