COLLEGE PLACE, Wash. — One person was injured after a Milton-Freewater teenager allegedly caused a crash in College Place, Washington, on Wednesday, July 29, according to Washington State Patrol.

Christopher R. Anderson, 27, of Milton-Freewater, was sent to Providence St. Mary Medical Center with unspecified injuries. His condition was not available.

Anderson was the passenger in a 1995 Toyota Corolla driven by Justin C. Anderson, 31, of Milton-Freewater. The two were northbound on State Route 125 and came to a stop at the intersection of the highway and South College Avenue around 6:02 p.m. Wednesday, the report said.

While stopped at the intersection, a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 driven by a 16-year-old teenager from Milton-Freewater rear-ended Anderson's car. The teen driver was not injured, and neither was a 15-year-old passenger, also from Milton-Freewater.

Both teens were reportedly wearing seat belts, but the Andersons were not, according to WSP.

The 16-year-old was cited for following too closely.

Both vehicles were damaged, but were driven from the scene.
