An accident on Tuesday morning on Highway 243 injured four, according to recent news sources.
The accident occurred in Mattawa at the intersection of Road 24 and Highway 243.
A 30-year-old man from Sunnyside stopped his 1998 Honda Accord when he came to the stop sign at the intersection after approaching it by traveling west on Road 24. The driver of the Honda Accord apparently pulled out in front of another vehicle, a 1988 Ford Ranger pickup truck, which was traveling north on Highway 243. They collided in the southbound lane of Highway 243.
The Honda driver was carrying two other passengers, a 28-year-old and a 36-year-old, both from Mattawa. All three were injured. The driver of the Ranger, a 28-year-old from Yakima, was also injured. All were taken to a local hospital.
The driver of the Honda Accord has been cited for failure to yield.
