PROSSER An Othello woman is recovering from injuries today following a single-car crash near Prosser yesterday morning.
Mireya Garcia, 33, was driving a Toyota Corolla westbound on Interstate 82 when at Milepost 82 she reportedly lost control and the vehicle flipped over.
Garcia, who is from Othello, was injured and transported to PMH Medical Center in Prosser. A passenger, four-year-old Colin Abad of Othello, was not injured, the State Patrol said.
Troopers said drugs and alcohol were not involved in the crash and that Garcia and Abad were wearing seatbelts.
The State Patrol said Garcia was driving too fast for conditions, and charged her with “speed too fast for conditions.”
