NEAR WHITE PASS -- A Yakima man has been upgraded to satisfactory condition Wednesday afternoon, following the fatal accident on Highway 12, near White Pass over the weekend.

Rogelio Benavidez-Ramirez, 21 is one of seven people from Yakima and Kennewick, taken to the hospital.

15-year old Raul, 11-year old Fernando, and 24-year old Roman Abundiz died when their jeep hit another car head on. All three were from Yakima.

In the meantime, the county coroner is awaiting toxicology tests to determine whether drugs or alcohol might've played a role in Sunday's deadly accident.
