Granger Cherry Festival This Weekend, More Briefs
The 66th annual Granger Cherry Festival at Granger City Park will take place Saturday and Sunday sponsored by the Granger Lions Club.
Club member Valdimeer Valenzuela says, “It’s a chance to celebrate the cherry bloom and have fun with friends and neighbors.” He says the festival includes live music, concessions, carnival rides and a bingo tent.
The Granger Cherry Festival parade starts at 11:00 am and weaves its way through the downtown area.
Washington State Patrol Troopers say the accident happened on State Route 241 and Stover Road.
They say 26-year-old Randy Vasquez failed to notice the cars in front of him were stopped waiting for a school bus because he was texting. Vasquez hit a pick-up truck driven by 22-year-old Danny Perales Jr. who then slammed into another car driven by 23-year-old Mayra Amecula-Alcala.
All three drivers were transported to Sunnyside Community Hospital with injuries.
Aside from texting, Vasquez was also not wearing his seat-belt. Charges are pending.
