Chain reaction crash on Padden injures woman




A woman was injured in a crash that temporarily blocked an intersection on Northeast Padden Parkway Wednesday morning, officials said.

Angelina Yelverton, 33, was stopped in a 2005 Voltswagon Jetta at Padden Parkway and Northeast 117th Avenue at 7:36 a.m. and Patricia Hanna, 68, was stopped behind her in a 2005 PT Cruiser, according to a Washington State Patrol memo.

Brandon Krueger, 33, approached from behind traveling at “minor speed” and anticipated the green light, running his 2008 Ford F350 into the PT Cruiser, which was pushed into the Jetta.

Hanna reported neck and back pain and was treated at PeaceHealth Southwest Washington Medical Center and released. Her vehicle had $7,000 worth of damage and was towed from the scene. Yelverton and Kreuger were both uninjured, and their cars had $400 and $1,000 of damage, respectively. Krueger was cited for driver inattention.
