NEAR EASTON, Wash. -- A 4 year old Yakima girl was hospitalized with cuts to her face after a two vehicle accident on Interstate 90, west of Easton.

The accident happened just before 6 p.m. Thursday.

Washington State Patrol troopers say the driver, Ashley Burmaster, 23, of Yakima lost control of her vehicle while changing lanes, and hit the side of another vehicle.

Troopers say Burmaster's 4-year-old daughter was taken to Kittitas Valley Community Hospital in Ellensburg. A spokesperson tells KNDO the girl was treated and released from the hospital as of Friday afternoon.

Burmaster was not injured. However, troopers say she could be charged with driving too fast for the conditions. The other driver was not injured.
