Rochester woman is part of 4-vehicle accident on I-5

A 50-year-old Rochester woman was injured and taken to Providence Centralia Hospital on Saturday afternoon after she was involved in a four-vehicle accident on northbound Interstate 5, according to the Washington State Patrol.

About 1:20 p.m. Saturday, the woman was northbound on I-5, near Centralia, when she was allegedly hit from behind by another vehicle after she slowed for two vehicles in front of her. The result was a four-vehicle accident.

The driver that crashed into the Rochester woman’s vehicle — a 23-year-old Ellensburg man — was cited for driving too fast for the conditions, according to the State Patrol.

The other drivers were not injured.
