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.
