YAKIMA, Wash. — A driver had to be cut free from her car after it was hit by a Jeep Cherokee at the intersection of 26th and Fairbanks avenues Thursday morning, according to Yakima police.
Firefighters arrived on scene and requested an additional crew to bring extrication equipment.
Once removed from the vehicle, the driver was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, police Capt. Rod Light said at the scene. Her condition was not known late Thursday.
Light said the injured woman was westbound on Fairbanks when her small Ford car was struck directly in the driver’s door by the Jeep, which was northbound on 26th.
Light said the man driving the Cherokee apparently failed to yield to the car. He was not injured.
