MOXEE, WA (YAKIMA COUNTY) – A woman died in a three-vehicle collision on SR-24 in Moxee Wednesday afternoon, according to YakTriNews.
The accident occurred near the intersection of SR-24 and Rivard Road at about 4 p.m. when 28-year-old Christie A. Cox, of Moxee, drove a Toyota Corolla into the path of a semi-truck.
The truck, driven by Selah man Yeltsin G. Garduno, 28, then collided with the Corolla.
