Puyallup woman injured in wreck west of Naches

A Puyallup woman was injured when two vehicles collided west of Naches on Saturday evening, authorities reported.

The 49-year-old was taken to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital after the accident on state Route 410 about 35 miles west of Naches. She was treated and released.

The woman was riding in a 2008 Dodge Ram pickup when the accident occurred at milepost 86 around 5:30 p.m., according to the Washington State Patrol.

The driver, a 59-year-old Puyallup man, was westbound when an eastbound 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe crossed the center line, hitting the pickup in the westbound lane, the state patrol said.

A 63-year-old New Zealand man, who authorities say was driving the Santa Fe, was not injured, nor was the 64-year-old New Zealand woman in the vehicle with him.

All four people were wearing seat belts, the state patrol said.

Inattention was a factor in the crash, authorities said. A charge of driving to the left of the centerline is pending.
