Woman hospitalized after big rig crash on I-82
YAKIMA, Wash. -- Serious injuries after an accident on I-82 in Yakima this morning. A semi-truck nearly plunged down an embankment. Troopers say the Cle Elum driver wasn't paying attention when he lost control and hit the cable barrier before ending up on the opposite shoulder. You could see the cab hanging over the edge of the hill. The driver's 62-year-old wife was in the sleeping compartment at the time. She was flown to a hospital in Seattle. Traffic was down to one lane while crews cleared the scene near the Fair Avenue exit.
