SELAH, Wash. (AP) - The Washington State Patrol says a 36-year-old Yakima, Washington, woman who was holding her 17-month-old son was killed when she stepped outside her car after a crash on Interstate 82 near Selah and was struck by a pickup.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports (ttp://is.gd/PWwcGp) that troopers identified the woman as Antonia Vazquez Ruiz. Lt. Ken Wade said Thursday afternoon that the little boy had been released from a hospital with no serious injuries.

Wade says the woman was fatally injured Thursday morning when the pickup struck two vehicles involved in the first crash in the westbound lanes. He says two other people were taken to a hospital.
