YAKIMA, Wash- A crash in Highland sends four people to the hospital this morning.  It happened at about 11:22am on the 15000 block of Summitview Road. 

According to the Yakima Sheriff's Office, 18-year-old Alexander Lafferty was going around a curve, lost control, and hit a burgundy Honda head on.  Deputy Scott swallow says Lafferty was driving too fast for the slippery conditions.

"Slow down, don't follow close, make sure you have good tires with good tread depth", reminds Swallow.

Although the damage to the Honda is severe, no one was seriously hurt.  The four people in the car were treated at Yakima Regional Hospital for minor injuries.  The driver can expect a speeding ticket in the mail.
