A Vancouver woman was injured Thursday afternoon in a rear-end collision allegedly caused by speed and driver inattention on Highway 500.

Just after 1 p.m., Beth Jackson, 51, of Vancouver was westbound on Highway 500 near Falk Road in her 1995 Mazda 626. Ye J Moon, 22, was also westbound on 500 in a 2013 Mercedes C250 when she came to a stop for a traffic light. Jackson was unable to stop her Mazda in time and rear ended the Mercedes, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Moon was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center.

Jackson, who was not injured, was cited for speeding. Speed and driver inattention caused the collision, the State Patrol said.
