Crash sends WSU student, passengers to hospital

Drugs and alcohol were not involved, and the driver and all three passengers were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.

Washington State University student Silvia Muro-Escalante was headed west on State Route 26 just after 6 p.m. when her car left the roadway and rolled 40 yards. Her passengers, Karen Rodriguez and Magly Mendoza-Salinas, were also injured, and a third passenger was uninjured. Muro-Escalante was transported by MedStar to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Lewiston in unknown condition. Her two injured passengers were transported to Whitman Hospital and Medical Center. Washington State Patrol believes the crash was caused by fatigue and driving too fast for road conditions.
