Washington State Patrol troopers are looking for a white Nissan Versa with Oregon plates after the driver hit a firefighter and left the scene Sunday morning north of Granger, in Yakima County, officials said.
The westbound car lost control on Interstate 82 milepost 57 and struck a firefighter who was at the left rear of a fire truck parked at the scene of a collision, according to a news release from the Washington State Patrol. The car stopped briefly and then left. The firefighter, a Granger resident, was injured and taken to Virginia Mason Memorial hospital, WSP said.
