Traffic Slowed After Woman Allegedly Fails to Pass Semi
A woman says she was cut off by a semi-truck driver, but tire tracks apparently show her trying to pass the big rig on the left shoulder on Tuesday afternoon.
They were both merging onto southbound Highway 395 from Highway 240 in Kennewick.
The semi collided with the passenger car and turned it sideways, said the Washington State Patrol.
Neither driver was injured, but the truck’s load came loose causing congestion while crews were cleaning it up.
The WSP is investigating and has yet to determine if either driver will receive a ticket for the collision.
