Three injured in multi-vehicle accident on Cable Bridge

A four car collision injures three people on the northbound lanes of the Cable Bridge (SR-397) Saturday afternoon.

The Washington State Patrol says inattention and following too close were the cause of the accident.

Two of the three injured were transported to Lourdes Medical Center in Pasco.  The third victim was transported to Kennewick General Hospital.

Traffic and use of the Cable Bridge has increased since the start of construction on the Blue Bridge (US 395) late Thursday night.
