DUI accidents in Yakima-Sunnyside spike in March

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA -  Two more D-U-I accidents over the weekend have pushed the total this month in the Yakima-Sunnyside area to nine.

Four people were injured in the one that happened on wapato road this past Saturday morning.

There was another that same morning in Toppenish, where five people suffered minor injuries.

State Patrol is concerned about the big spike and thinks it's probably due, in part, to more people hitting the roads with warmer weather.

Another big countywide emphasis patrol is planned for this week.
