Sunnyside motorist

— A Sunnyside woman was hospitalized this past Sunday after swerving to miss a deer in the roadway on I-82.

State troopers say Ofelia B. Reyes, 26, was headed eastbound on the interstate near milepost 46 when she swerved her 2005 Nissan Pathfinder to miss a deer that ran into the roadway.

Reyes’ vehicle slid sideways, rolled and came to rest on its wheels. The State Patrol says she was injured in the crash and transported to Toppenish Community Hospital.

No charges are pending, the State Patrol reports.
