GRANGER, Wash. (AP) - The Washington State Patrol says an 87-year-old Richland woman was driving the wrong way on Interstate 82 when she collided with two oncoming cars near Granger.

The patrol says Mary A. Nelson was killed in the crash Monday evening and five other people were injured.

Troopers say Nelson was driving westbound in the eastbound lanes when she hit another car. That driver, a 32-year-old Sunnyside woman, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

That car then struck a third car. A man and woman with two boys, ages 3 and 5, from Kennewick were injured and taken to Yakima Regional Medical Center.
