Car accident in Sunnyside sends one to hospital

A two-car collision at the intersection of South Sixth Street and East Lincoln Avenue sent one person to the Sunnyside Community Hospital emergency room late Thursday afternoon.

The driver of one of the vehicles involved fled the scene on foot, claiming he was going for help, according to the police report. The passenger in his vehicle suffered injuries to her face and arms, and was transported by ambulance to the emergency room. The driver was contacted by phone and later returned to the scene.

The driver and passengers in the second vehicle were reportedly unharmed. Both vehicles were totaled and were towed from the scene.

The accident occurred at approximately 4 p.m.

Police also responded to a non-injury accident in the 1000 block of Tacoma Avenue yesterday afternoon, but no details were available.

Additionally, police investigated two reports of theft Thursday, one involving missing gasoline from a vehicle parked in the 2300 block of Yakima Valley Highway and a report of missing tools from the back of a truck parked in a driveway in the 1300 block of Apple Lane.

Police also made contact with a female motorist in the school zone near Washington School, who was reportedly “cussing and yelling” at the school staff. The individual was told about the laws regarding school zones.

In other activity, police investigated two animal complaints, four automatic alarms, all of which proved unfounded, one assault, one report of harassment, three juvenile problems, two suspicious circumstances and one report of threats.

Officers also provided two agency assists, fielded seven informational calls, made four welfare checks and made three public service contacts during the past 24 hours.
