Accident on State Route 97 near Toppenish kills woman

A report on KNDO.com reports that Darla Atkins, age 40, lost control of her vehicle and crashed into another on State Route 97 near Toppenish around 6 pm on Friday and was killed in the car accident.

Washington State Troopers are concerned about the increase they see in the number of motor vehicle accidents on this stretch of road. Most fatalities have one or both of two things in common: the drivers and passengers are failing to wear seat belts and alcohol is involved. They say in this fatality, alcohol was definitely a factor and no one in both cars were wearing seat belts.
