The Washington State Patrol is recommending charges of driving under the influence and child endangerment for a Vancouver woman involved in a two-car injury crash in Vancouver late Saturday.

A WSP bulletin said the crash occurred at 9:23 p.m. at the intersection of Northeast 157th Avenue and Fourth Plain Road when Stacey L. Barrera, 36, failed to obey a traffic control device while turning from westbound Fourth Plain to southbound 157th Avenue and crashed her 2016 Chevrolet Cruze into a 2017 Subaru Crosstrek driven east on Fourth Plain by Rebecca C. Farrell, 50, of Vancouver.

Barrerra was injured in the crash and transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, according to the WSP. Her condition was not immediately available.

Two boys in her car, ages 11 and 12, were not injured. Farrell was not injured, the WSP reported.

In addition to DUI and child endangerment charges, the WSP reported it is recommending a failure to obey a traffic control device.
