Two people escaped injuries Sunday afternoon in a head-on collision near Kelso, according to news reports.
The incident occurred around 3 p.m. when a 61-year-old Kelso woman was driving a 2000 Kenworth tractor trailer westbound on the eastbound off ramp leading from State Route 432 (Tennant Way) to Talley Way, according to news reports. As she was driving, she crashed head-on with a 1991 Toyota 4-Runner driven by a 32-year-old Kelso woman.
The woman driving the 4-Runner and her 21-year-old passenger were transported to St. John Medical Center with minor injuries and released.
Everyone involved in the collision was wearing their seatbelt, according to news reports.
Police fined the woman driving the tractor trailer with wrong-way driving, which caused the collision.
