A Tieton woman is hospitalized in critical condition after a three-car crash Monday morning on Summitview Road near Klendon Drive.


Marla Tuesley, 51, was taken to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital before being transferred to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center, where she was listed in critical condition Tuesday morning.

Tuesley was driving a Kia Soul east on Summitview Road shortly after 7 a.m. when her car was struck by a westbound Dodge Stratus that crossed the centerline, according to a news release issued by the Washington State Patrol. A Honda Accord that was also eastbound then struck the Stratus.

The Stratus driver — 40-year-old Jose L. Martinez — reported minor injuries. The Honda driver — Jose Galvan, 49, of Tieton — was not hurt, authorities said.

All three were wearing seat belts.

Intoxicants were suspected of contributing to the crash, troopers said, adding that any charges are pending.
