Three-Car Accident on Leslie Street Leaves 1 Dead

RICHLAND, WA (June 22, 2021)  – A female passenger died Wednesday afternoon after a tragic three-car accident on Leslie Street.

The fatal crash happened around 4:14 p.m. on June 9, near Canyon Avenue.

As per reports, two vehicles were heading south on Leslie and Canyon, and as two lanes merged into one, neither driver yielded to the other. As a result, the two cars collided.

Richland Police say one vehicle was pushed into another in the northbound lane, causing a third car to crash into the passenger’s side of the initial vehicle.
