Two people were injured Wednesday in a three-car collision on state Highway 500 near Proebstel, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The crash occurred just before 4 p.m. near the highway’s intersection with Northeast 65th Street, according to a State Patrol bulletin.

The bulletin said Bradley A. Thompson, 32, of Vancouver was driving east on the highway when traffic slowed ahead of him and he crashed his 2014 Isuzu box truck into the rear of a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado pickup driven by Charles E. Ramsey, 60, of Vancouver and then into an oncoming 2000 Chevrolet S10 pickup driven by Rafael N. Casillas, 61, of Vancouver.

Casillas was injured in the crash and was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, according to the bulletin. Thompson was also injured but was not transported.

The State Patrol blamed the crash on inattention and said drugs or alcohol were not involved.
